Innovative Production of Shakespeare’s Classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at Walton Arts Center for One Night Only

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and witty comedies, brought to vivid life in an innovative new production by Aquila Theatre Company at Walton Arts Center on Saturday, March 16 at 8 p.m. as part of the 10x10 Arts Series.

Tickets for each event are $10 and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.

Aquila’s signature style of beautiful movement, combined with music, song and some of the finest Shakespearean acting today results in an unforgettable production.

Aquila’s productions of Shakespeare have been critically acclaimed by The New Yorker as “beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” The New York Times says that Aquila “makes Shakespeare perfectly comprehensible” and hails the company as “an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.”

Walton Arts Center’s 10x10 Arts Series brings a variety of groundbreaking artists and awe-inspiring performances to Northwest Arkansas at a price that allows more people to experience live theater performances.

Patrons attending a 10x10 Arts Series performance are invited to a preshow Creative Conversation with members from Aquila Theatre Company led by a member of Walton Arts Center’s programming staff at 7 p.m. Following the show, patrons are also invited to attend a party with the artists in the Walker Atrium and to share their thoughts about the show with the popular Post-It® Note responses.
