A Co-Production with Sacred Heart Downtown and Highland Arts Theatre


Based on "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare

Directed & Adapted by Wesley J. Colford

Music Directed by Barbara Stetter

Original Choreography by Cynthia Vokey

Life could be a dream in this fervant and funny new musical inspired by Shakespeare's most whimsical and mirth filled romantic comedy. It's 1958 and Johnny Angels run rampant, pursued Run-around Sues. It will take more than Love Potion #9 to sort out this mess! A high-spirited romp filled with singing, dancing, and all your favourite '50's tunes.

Re-live one of the most successful shows ever created by the Highland Arts Theatre in a brand new production at a brand new venue! Return to the 1950's in an immersive spectacle that puts you in the centre of a Sacred Heart sized Malt Shoppe complete with a Live Rock and Roll band and a Gourmet Burger and Shakes delivered to your table by some hep cats and kittens on roller skates!

Throw on your poodle skirt, hop in your Cadillac, and zoom on down to Sacred Heart Downtown. Dressing up and costumes are encouraged and you may find yourself on the dance floor of the Sock Hop before the night is over...
