The setting is study hall, teenagers, one of the great-unsolved mysteries of the world. Three young streetwise storytellers weave this magical tale into an easy to understand adventure for audiences of all ages. While these unwitting, well-meaning goofs stumble into their 15 minutes of celebrity, observers are transported through this midsummer night’s dream while bedazzled by a devilish prankster. If you’ve ever loved, lacked, or feared Shakespeare…now’s the time to take the journey and let it work its magic.
