Enjoy free performances of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” April 29-30 at the Lick Creek Amphitheater

UPDATE (4/19): Both performances are sold out.

By Brooke Littlefield, Recreation Supervisor

Springtime in Texas means color returns to our gardens, animals become more active, and our favorite butterflies are back. The pleasant weather also makes it difficult to choose between indoor and outdoor activities.

Thanks to the outstanding Blinn-Bryan Theatre Troupe, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with Shakespeare in the Park at the Lick Creek Park Amphitheater.

On Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30, the group presents William Shakespeare’s comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The one-act adaptation by Gillette Elvgren revolves around four players in a traveling clown company who wake up one morning to discover they have been abandoned. That evening, they must perform “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” before the local squire while frantically re-inventing the play with only four clowns.

The free performances begin at 6:30 p.m., but activity booths open at 5 p.m. and feature light refreshments, face painting, photo booths, wand making, and more.

Although admission is free, tickets are limited, and registration is required online or by calling 979-764-6216. Additional parking is available at the Lick Creek Park equestrian entrance off Rock Prairie Road.

We offer our sincere thanks to the Blinn-Bryan Theatre Troupe for its complimentary performances. For more information, visit cstx.gov/LickCreek or call 979-764-6216.
