A Midsummer Night's Dream 

When: Aug. 25-28, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15-30

Is it the magic of Shakespeare or the chance to see an open-air space transformed into spectacular theater that draws people from the corners of a city to gather under the darkening sky? In New York City, people wait hours for a free ticket to see Shakespeare performed in Central Park. Despite the blazing summer heat, fans camp out on the sidewalk early in the morning with bottles of water, chairs, books and music. But here in the Triangle, there's no need to skip work to see a little of the Bard. Love, trust, mistaken identity, fairies, donkeys, heroes and fair maidens abound yet again in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the second annual Shakespeare production at Koka Booth. The show runs Thursday–Sunday at 8 p.m.; doors open at 6:30 p.m., and while picnics are encouraged, food is also available for purchase. Lawn tickets are $15, table seats are $25; it's free on the lawn for children under 12, and seniors and students get in for $10. —Christina Cass
