“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is not just a tale of love, mischief, and fairy-touched wonderment—it’s a journey into the whimsical heartbeats of young souls navigating the complex tapestry of dreams, desires, and the delicate dance of growing up. With Green Tea at its helm, expect a fresh, spirited, and youthful interpretation of Shakespeare’s beloved classic.

As moonlight bathes the stage, our young artists breathe new life into the time-worn tales of mischievous Puck, star-crossed lovers, and a troupe of bumbling players. Their story, though set in a realm of magic and mythology, finds resonance in today’s world, reminding us of the power of imagination, the mirth found in misadventures, and the ageless nature of love and longing.

This is not merely a retelling, but a reimagining—a vivid tapestry woven from the dreams and aspirations of tomorrow’s theatrical luminaries. Be it the ethereal grace of Titania’s fairy kingdom or the comedic antics of Bottom and his crew, every scene is an exploration, a testament to the boundless creativity of youth and the transformative power of theatre.

Join us March 15-17 at The Capitol Encore Academy, and let the talented ensemble of Green Tea transport you to a world where the boundaries between dream and reality blur, and where the laughter, love, and luminance of youth shine brightest.
