Theatre for Good presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Judy Black Park and Gardens. William Shakespeare’s classic, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” full of ove, magic, faeries, drama, flowers, comedy, and a donkey under the moon in the wild, untamed, and uncharted forest.
These small productions by and for friends and neighbors bring the community together and raise money for local and national causes and are produced under the name, “Theatre for Good.” It is completely non-profit.
In the last year, they have produced Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard,” Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” and John Cariani’s “Almost, Maine,” and raised funds through theatre for The Steep Rock Association, WMS Annual Fund, Higher Heights, Emerge America, the Susan B. Anthony Organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, Women’s Center of Greater Danbury, and Loaves and Fishes of New Milford.
“I believe plays have an abundance of important messages to spread; ideas that need to be heard, especially in these times. My intention is simply to spread awareness and good words, pay it forward, and offer everyone a night to play in or attend the theatre.” – Caroline Kinsolving, founder of Theatre for Good
They are preparing for the fourth and fifth plays in the Theatre for Good Series: theatre to bring people together and benefit local causes. The performances are free with a suggested donation for anyone who would like to attend. Whatever is collected will be shared with the Judy Black Park and Gardens and local charities in Litchfield County.
“We are very grateful to Judy Black Park and WMS for being so welcoming of it’s friends and neighbors to bring quality plays to the area. Our little towns are so full of talented and cultured folk, those who thirst to perform and those who crave to experience. Judy Black’s beautiful space allows great opportunity for performance and audience.” —Caroline Kinsolving, founder of Theatre for Good
