Opens Friday, June 6, 8 p.m.
Summer has yet to officially start, but American Theatre Company steps ahead with Shakespeare on the Lawn and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The fantasy comedy about quarrelsome royals, crafty sprites, fickle lovers and a goof troupe of would-be thespians lost in the forest is told on the lawn at Philbrook Museum of Art, 2727 S. Rockford Ave., a long-standing tradition between ATC and the museum. Viewers are invited to bring lawn chairs, blankets, picnic baskets and other comforts and enjoy under the night sky. Tickets are $10-$20 at www.myticketoffice.com.
