Starting with six actors in a room with a bunch of fabric, a highly energetic and hilarious production of Shakespeare's greatest comedy was born.

PERFORMANCES

Annual Tour (1)
In March and April of 2003, the production toured to schools and communities throughout Minnesota.

Minnesota Shakespeare Festival at Grand Marais (2)
Dream ran in rotating repertory with Macbeth for two weeks in early summer. Staging was modifed for an alley-style theatre, and lighting was added, but it was effectively the same show as was performed on tour.

Minnesota Arts eXperience (3)
In July, the company was invited to perform Dream at the Guthrie Theater's Minnesota Arts eXperience conference: an educational conference for Minnesota High School Students.

Missouri River Festival of the Arts (4)
In August 2003, the company toured to our most far-flung destination to date: Boonville, Missouri. Our Dream was offered as part of the Missouri River Festival of the Arts, in the gloriously renovated Thespian Hall.
