Tacoma Arts Live invites you to immerse yourself in a unique theatrical experience of Shakespeare’s, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Director Deanna Martinez reinvents this whimsical romantic comedy by rooting it in a celebration of Boricua-Hawaiiana culture. Magic, potions, and mystery are met with hula, ipu heke, and true aloha spirit in this fantastical escape. Hawaii will fully surround the audience and performers through beautiful, huge projections created by flora&faunavisions, the designers behind Utopian Garden.
This is “Shakespeare in the Park … in the Armory.” Wear aloha shirts and flower crowns, and bring your beach towels, leis, lauhala mats, pillows, and low-profile beach chairs to enjoy the enchanting oasis inside Tacoma Armory. Presented in collaboration with cultural consultants from the Asia Pacific Cultural Center, who are supporting the music and movement for A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Guests are invited to bring blankets and low profile beach chairs and make themselves comfortable on the floor, or be seated in standard chairs provided by the house. Please indicate your preference when reserving tickets.
This performance is listed as ASL interpreted. As always, please confirm schedule and best seating location with theatre.
