Celebrating 25 years of Shakespeare-in-the-Park: 1988 to 2013
“The course of true love never did run smooth.” Act I, Scene I, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Twenty-five years ago, a ragtag band of young actors mounted A Midsummer Night’s Dream, realizing their dream of creating Montreal’s very own Shakespeare-in-the-Park touring company. In 1988, 800 audience members were witness to this first production. Today, over 10,000 people enjoy this spectacular tradition each year.
To celebrate 25 extraordinary years of bringing Shakespeare to Montreal parks, please join us as we tour yet another magical production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed byfrom July 4 to August 4, 2013.

This fantastical production will feature actors from seasons past as well as fresh and talented up-and-comers. Don’t miss this special staging of a play that practically invented the concept of setting Shakespeare in a park!
