Shakespeare play, venue are a dream

Shakespeare came to the park — Clement Park — last Friday.

The Foothills Theatre Company presented the Bard’s classic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at South Jeffco's premiere outdoor venue. The comedy of errors centers on two young couples, unrequited love, mischievous fairies and one man’s unfortunate transformation into a donkey.

The 500-year-old play still elicits plenty of laughs from a 21st-century audience — thanks to the amazing source material, said audience member Larissa Packer.
