The Arc Theatre joins Ridgeville Park District’s Shakespeare on the Ridge series again this summer with Shakespeare’s seductive comedy of magic and mischief.

Starry-eyed young lovers and a couple of ambitious actors escape the rigid world of Athens and enter into a magical wood inhabited by spectacular faeries whose lust for mischief is fueled by their own torrid romance.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” directed by Mark Boergers, will stage free performances at 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays July 20-Aug. 11 at Ridgeville Park, 908 Seward St.
