Large Mixed Cast
An hilarious high-octane re-telling of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream set on the boardwalk of a seaside town in modern-day New Jersey

The story revolves around the impending marriage of the Governor of New Jersey, the love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon - run by Patti Quince and Stylist Nikki Bottom

The night takes a magical turn when Oberon and the impish Puck arrive on the scene armed with a powerful love potion and a desire for mischief making

With several weddings and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, the lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite

Cast: M5,F10 (flexible)

Appropriate for all audiences

"Appealing to the cultural tastes and theatrical ambitions of the [next] generation" ~ The Washington Post

"A sensational jest of pop culture and examines the test of true love ... An explosive combination of brassy personalities and bold hilarity" ~ Fairfax Station Patch
