William Shakespeare's seminal 16th century comedy, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," follows a group of lovers and actors as their lives are toyed with by fairies and sprites. Albeit plenty fantastical on its own, Penfield Recreation is channeling the play's whimsy with A Mid-Summer Night's Dream Dinner in the Woods. A fundraiser benefiting the Penfield Recreation's Daytime Education at Recreation program, A Mid-Summer Night's Dream Dinner in the Woods registrants will receive a map leading them to a secret location where they'll be greeted with a local, organic feast deep in the forest. The evening also includes live music, fairy trail scavenger hunts, and a 15-minute abridged performance of the play that inspired the whole event.
A Mid-Summer Night's Dream Dinner in the Woods will take place Wednesday, August 13, 6 p.m., at a secret location. Tickets are $40, and a limited number are available. For more information call 340-8655, or go online at penfieldrec.org.
