This weekend, run away to the woods with young lovers, a rag tag group of amateur actors, and mischievous fairies in Shakespeare’s most famous comedy: A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The Oswegoland Park District’s Limelight Theatre Company is thrilled to revisit this lighthearted romp in a whole new way: outside under the sun, moon, and stars!

Limelight’s first outdoor performance will be this July 17 & 18 at 6pm and July 18 & 19 at 2pm at Hudson Crossing Park. To celebrate their 15th Anniversary Season, this Ravinia-style theatrical performance along the banks of the Fox River will be free of charge.

Be a part of the festivities by bringing your blankets and chairs for the best seat in the park to watch these foolish mortals and magical tricksters. Pack your picnic baskets chock full of goodies and a bottle of something to toast the happy couples!

Director, and Limelight Artistic Director, Cori Veverka has loved every second of working on this production. Veverka said, “My first experience with Limelight was Assistant Directing this show in 2003, so it holds a very special place in my heart. Rehearsals for this incarnation have brought back many fond memories and created a slew of new ones. This cast is filled with some of the most fearless, smart, and silly actors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. The actors are a wide range of ages (12 through adult), and they bring a great mix of experiences to the table.”

This crowd pleaser is an absolute dream with something for everyone: love, action, magic, and a donkey. There will be baked goods available during a brief intermission. In the event of inclement weather, rain dates/locations will be posted

Contact Cori at with any questions about this show or any other Limelight Theatre Company productions. Limelight wraps up their 15th Anniversary season with Legally Blonde the Musical July 29- August 1 at Oswego High School.
