The Nashville Shakespeare Festival returns to Franklin Thursday night for the 30th anniversary of Shakespeare in the Park.

Actors will perform the magical comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” from September 13 through 16 at the Williamson County Performing Arts Center at Academy Park, 120 Everbright Avenue.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., a “Talking Shakespeare” lecture will be presented, and food trucks will open to the public.

At 6 p.m., pre-show entertainment begins, before the performance starts at 7.

Fresh off the Nashville run where audiences and critics have been raving about the show, the cast of 23 actors and onstage musicians will bring this enchanting, family-friendly play to Franklin for the third year in a row.

Artistic Director, Denice Hicks says, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the perfect play to celebrate 30 years of Shakespeare in the Park. There is a lot of tension and anxiety in the world these days and this is an event that brings everyone together to share a fun evening full of laughter and wonder.”

Joining the cast for the Franklin weekend is Santiago Sosa. He will be replacing Geoff Davin in the role of Oberon.

The event is free, but a $10 donation is encouraged.  Royal Packages (reserved parking, seating, and dinner) are $75 and available at TicketsNashville.com.
