Watching A Midsummer Night's Dream presented by the Interlochen Shakespeare Festival is the perfect way to end a summer evening.

The production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be held outdoors in Interlochen's new Upton-Morley Pavilion, so it really is a "Midsummer Night's Dream."

Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers: An Evening of Bluegrass and Comedy

Friday June 29 at 8pm

Steve Martin has managed to weave the two worlds of music and comedy into a perfect medley. His comedic wit and his banjo picking skills are all a part of his collaboration with the Grammy-nominated North Carolina band, the Steep Canyon Rangers. His Interlochen stop is an early part of his tour, but so far the reviews have been nothing but glowing. Joel Francis from the Kansas City Star said that it was difficult to tell if his performance, "was a comedy show hijacked by bluegrass music or the other way around. Either way, it was a success."

The performance is this Friday so call the box office today at 800.681.5920 to see if tickets are still available!
