Theatre Raleigh will kick off this year's family series with its own spin on the Shakespeare classic A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The show opens Thursday and runs on select days through March 19 at the Kennedy Theatre at the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children.
The 45-minute show is best for fifth graders and up. The show takes a contemporary spin on this tale of fairies, love and woodland mischief.
The theater also is a great place for kids to experience a live performance. The small, black box theater is intimate. Every seat feels like the front row and the audience is no farther than 10 feet from the action.
The series' second show, The Wolf, returns March 23 to April 2, which also is a lot of fun for young audiences.
Theatre Raleigh's website has the details and ticket information about both shows.
