Character Content: While often hidden in verse, Shakespeare’s tale has many innuendos and romantic encounters. Almost any character in love will kiss someone. All of the fairies and spirits will have physical demands, including running, jumping, and dancing.
***Note: While the “Shakespearean” feel of the play will be kept, some of the language and character genders will be adapted for ease of accessibility both for the cast and for the audience.****
