The Town of New Castle, along with the Art & Culture Committee, present LawnChair Theater’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Town Rec Field. In this contemporary production, lovers, nobility, and home-spun actors shoot selfies while Fairies dance to David Bowie.
LawnChair Theater is a summer program bringing Shakespeare to the parks of Westchester since 2005. Their actors come from all over Westchester and Fairfield County, bringing a wide range of theatrical training and experience. The producers’ goal is to contemporize Shakespeare without rewriting him, and to create community through their work and play.
