Shakespeare's intertwined love polygons begin to get complicated from the start--Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander. Bad news is, Hermia's father wants Demetrius for a son-in-law. On the outside is Helena, whose unrequited love burns hot for Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander plan to flee from the city under cover of darkness but are pursued by an enraged Demetrius (who is himself pursued by an enraptured Helena). In the forest, unbeknownst to the mortals, Oberon and Titania (King and Queen of the faeries) are having a spat over a servant boy. The plot twists up when Oberon's head mischief-maker, Puck, runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking. Throw in a group of labourers preparing a play for the Duke's wedding (one of whom is given a donkey's head and Titania for a lover by Puck) and the complications become fantastically funny. Join us prior to the show beginning at 4:30 for an all you care to eat buffet!  Tickets just $14.95 for adults and $7.95 for kids 10 and under. This production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is part of Shakespeare on Sugarloaf, a major initiative of The Scioto Society, Inc. to provide free Shakespeare to Southern Ohio.
Shakespeare On Sugarloaf: Hamlet

 Hamlet is Shakespeare’s most popular, and most puzzling, play. It follows the form of a “revenge tragedy,” in which the hero, Hamlet, seeks vengeance against his father’s murderer, his uncle Claudius, now the king of Denmark. Much of its fascination, however, lies in its uncertainties. Among them: What is the Ghost—Hamlet’s father demanding justice, a tempting demon, an angelic messenger? Does Hamlet go mad, or merely pretend to? Once he is sure that Claudius is a murderer, why does he not act? Was his mother, Gertrude, unfaithful to her husband or complicit in his murder? Join us prior to the show beginning at 4:30 for an all you care to eat buffet!  Tickets just $14.95 for adults and $7.95 for kids 10 and under. This production of "Hamlet" is part of Shakespeare on Sugarloaf, a major initiative of The Scioto Society, Inc. to provide free Shakespeare to Southern Ohio.
