We have been coming to the Shakespeare productions at Sand Harbor for many years. I have to say, that this year's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream was delightful. The production had such a light, airy vibe that the audience was enchanted. The addition of many Beatles songs and sixties references enlivened the performance and kept even young children in the audience engrossed. Bottom and Puck were particularly wonderful. A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

My wife and I had been here several years before to see Much Ado About Nothing, so it was a no-brainer to bring our visiting adult kids back for A Midsummer's Nights Dream. This production was extremely well cast and kept us smiling/laughing throughout. I recommend sitting close, as the performers add much with their expressions and (on occasion) a muttering. We had second row seats and so enjoyed the food service; my tri-tip salad with asparagus spears and blue cheese was outstanding! Our waiter was on top of it and shared our sense of humor, so that helped. We'll be back!

Oh, and the bathrooms closest to the theater quickly get busy. Use the ones (a bit) further away in the park restaurant. Bring your own bar of soap, as you're likely to find empty soap dispensers.

Awesome venue, unique and beautiful backdrop. Really enjoyed the play, the weather was beautiful. It gets chilly once the sun goes down so bring a sweater. Bring your cooler with snacks and drinks. All good.

Two years ago we saw Much Ado About Nothing here and were encouraged to come back this year to see Midsummer Night's Dream. Apparently the productions vary from fairly traditional to completely off the wall. Last time we were impressed by the way lightening and thunder heightened the meaning of the play. This performance was the latter. Wacky from beginning to end and I was struggling to find Shakespeare midst the music of Paul Simon and faux Beatlemania. Performances played to the far reaches of the outdoor ampi-theater, extremely broad with wild antics. Hermia won a long and lengthy applause for a cartwheeling gymnastic exhibition of emotion. Bottom couldn't be stopped from insisting on audience reactions a al Stephen Colbert. The food is good, the ambiance fantastic and, I guess, the chance of what you get in performance is part of the fun. Puck was excellent and all of the actors were accomplished and good but the production was way way way too long for such silliness.
