For obvious reasons, this is the perfect time of year for a performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and when the Nashville Public Library’s Wishing Chair Productions adds their magical marionettes to the mix, the Bard can make J.K. Rowling look like a dull Muggle. Featuring a spellbinding score by Belmont University’s Dan Landes, Midsummer’s interlocking tales feature forest fairies, the Queen of the Amazons, an Indian changeling and a troupe of actors performing — of course — the-play-within-the-play. Nashville Shakespeare Festival is even getting in on the fun, providing voices for the fantastic cast of characters. Parents are reminded that this is a 70-minute show intended for children 6 and older. Alternative programming will be available for little kids, so bring ’em if you’d like. And don’t worry — if your youngsters get cranky, you can always remind them that it’s all just a dream. Presented as part of the library’s Introduction to Shakespeare series.
