‘Midsummer in Midwinter’

Matthew Reddin, Contributing writer

Taking Shakespeare’s classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream and turning it upside-down to make it a contemporary midwinter farce? That’s just the sort of thing you’d expect from Theatre Gigante, which has spent more than 25 years developing its own distinct style of theater and movement. The troupe’s season concludes with this adaptation, which takes the basic idea of Shakespeare’s original play — confused lovers lost in the woods — and applies it to a new crop of characters, young and old alike, with farcical results.

At Kenilworth Studio 508, 1925 E. Kenilworth Place. Tickets are $25, $20 for seniors, $15 for students. Ring 800-838-3006 or visit theatregigante.org.

7:30 p.m. on Thurs., Fri., and Sat., May 9 to 17
