A Midsummer Night's Dream

The inaugural production on Santa Cruz Shakespeare's Audrey Stanley Grove


Santa Cruz Shakespeare turns to ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ to open a new venue and new chapter in its history
"For the staff, the crew, the volunteers and the many supporters of the pugnacious little theater group known as Santa Cruz Shakespeare, Friday will certainly be a midsummer night’s dream. But it will be more than that. It will be an opening curtain, the beginning of a new era, the first day of the future and the culmination of almost three years of Herculean work and determination of a task that, at one point, no one was certain would ever happen."

Theater review: Santa Cruz Shakespeare enchants in its new home with ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’
"Fairies in turquoise pajamas. A red-haired sprite wearing a fluffy white dress with turquoise hugging the skirt. A king, resplendent in white with a turquoise floral pattern on his pants and a crown with turquoise gemstones. His bride, a vision in a long white gown with turquoise touches. Even the nearby eucalyptus trees seem to have a turquoise tint... as do Christina Dinkel for the beautifully imagined costumes"
