OPSFest's Midsummer Midsommer.

We gathered at Council Crest Park to celebrate the longest day of the year by watching the Original Practice Shakespeare do a special bawdy Midsommer Nights Dreame.
What time could it be, on this, the longest day of the year?  Did you guess 9:18 PM?  If so, you guessed correctly!
The key to a happy viewing of a very long play that begins at dusk?  A lot of layers.

This was a huge cast and was a fun presentation.  My favorite part was the double casting of Clara-Liis Hillier AND Kaia Hillier as Puck.  My favorite audience comment about the sisters?  "It's like they when they were four years old."  They were full of fun.

She apparently hadn't quite gotten her smile on yet.
