Scott Bellis stars as Bottom in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," presented in Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival's 25th anniversary season, Wednesday, June 11, through Sept. 20 at Vancouver, B.C.'s Vanier Park. The play was presented during Bard's inaugural season in 1990. Dean Paul Gibson directs the play in Bard's 733-seat custom-built Mainstage Theatre tent.
"A Midsummer's Night Dream" is a delicious tale of meddling fairies, star-crossed lovers, royal engagements, and muddled tradesmen caught up in chaos. The most popular comedy in Shakespeare's canon, this side-splittingly hilarious romp has love on the loose in a world of sprites, elves and nymphs.
