Join us and The New Renaissance Theatre Company in Hartwood Acres for A Midommer Nights Dreame. Young lovers escape a tyrannical father, amateur actors prepare for a show and fairies fight and frolic in the forest outside of Athens in one of William Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. Bring a picnic and celebrate Britsburgh's 5th Annual Festival with this fast-paced, family-friendly and free performance on the lawn in front of the Mansion. This show is fast-paced, family-friendly and a lot of fun! 


What is unrehearsed Shakespeare? It's a technique whereby talented actors and actresses preform a freeform Shakespeare play without having the benefit of prior rehearsal and not knowing the part they will play until the day of the performance and in some cases literally minutes before as their part can be chosen by the audience.  Actors are given cue scripts that contain everything they need to know to act out their part. This technique provides for a lively and fast-faced evening. Join us for a great evening's entertainment.


Bring your own chairs, blankets and a picnic. Families are very welcome.


The event is FREE.  Donations are very welcome and help both non-profit organizations.
