Shakespeare on the Banks of the Humber

Bridge over Humber in Dicks Dam Park
Written by Patti Foley

Come join Humber River Shakespeare this summer, as we embark on our 9th season of touring outdoor theatre to communities across the GTA.

Starting July 5 and continuing to July 31, we bring one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies to a park near you.

A Midsummer’s Night Dream is a delightful tale of meddling fairies, star-crossed lovers, royal engagements, and muddled tradesmen caught up in chaos. The most popular comedy in Shakespeare’s canon, this hilarious romp has love on the loose in the woods. Add a misapplied love potion, mistaken identities and the most famous play-within-a play ever written, and you have a perfect recipe for joy and laughter.

The language, poetry, and wit of Shakespeare shine as bright and as lovely as the moon in this timeless classic.
