On a dreamy midsummer night's eve, the worlds of fairies, humans, dukes and donkeys collide under the magic spell of cupid's arrow. A bright and beautiful ballet in the classic style set to Shakespeare's immortal 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' proves that falling in love is the ultimate gift. For tickets and more information:
The 2 PM show is perfect for families with children who have an early bedtime - or for those of us who just don't want to drive at night anymore!
The 7:30 show makes for an ideal 'Date Night'. Enjoy a magical performance and then join in the cast and other 'mortals' at Puck's Place for champagne, fondue and lots of dancing! The perfect ending to a lovely evening.
MIDSUMMER brings you all the gorgeous dancers you saw in A HAUNTED SWAN LAKE and NUTCRACKER , but we thought we'd give you a closer look at two of our gifted new dancers.

Roberto Vega will play 'Puck' in this year's production and he is INCREDIBLE! Mr. Vega has all the technique you could wish for PLUS a great sense of humor. AND is a quick intelligent dancer. Needless to say, we are DELIGHTED! A former principal dancer with the Cuban National Ballet, his talent and special abilities are a welcome addition to the Company. About Mr. Vega
