Huntsville Shakespeare offers fresh takes on A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Henry V

By STAFF REPORTS

HUNTSVILLE – Transport to a dreamy English forest or get a ring-side seat for the Battle of Agincourt as Huntsville Botanical Garden and UAH’s Huntsville Shakespeare present Shakespeare in the Garden. All are invited to join the “merry wanderers of the night” on August 11 and 19 for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Those interested in a more serious topic are invited to enjoy Henry V on August 12 and 18. All performances will be held in the amphitheater at Huntsville Botanical Garden.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s greatest comedy about love, fairies, and donkeys. This 90-minute performance is family-friendly and sure to please everyone with its reminder that “the course of true love never did run smooth.”

Based on historical events, Henry V is Shakespeare’s exploration of what it means to be a hero, a patriot and a king. This 90-minute family-friendly version will take audiences from the castles of England to the battlefields of France and go “once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!”

Tickets are $25 for Garden members, $30 for non-members, and can be purchased at https://hsvbg.org/things-to-do-2/. There are no rain dates and no refunds for canceled performances.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Light snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the event. Guests are prohibited from bringing alcohol into the Garden.
