2018 marks the 12th year of Olean Theatre Workshop's presentation of Shakespeare's plays in an outdoor setting. This event is free to all and we encourage lovers of Shakespeare, fresh air, sultry nights, and good times to plan on joining friends and neighbors to see this great show. Attendees of this production are encouraged to pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or a blanket, and enjoy the mood and atmosphere of actors transporting us to Elizabethan theatre. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, residents of Athens mix with fairies from a local forest, with comic results. In the city, Theseus, Duke of Athens, is to marry Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons. Bottom the weaver and his friends rehearse in the woods a play they hope to stage for the wedding celebrations.
