What a delight that PAE is bringing to you this weekend–another great performance of Portland Actors Ensemble’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream!  You can see the show on Saturday, August 23rd and Sunday, August 24th, with both shows starting at 3 pm.  The Sunday, August 24th show will be American Sign Language interpreted.


The shows are held at Washington Park, SW Washington Way & SW Wright Ave. , Portland.  Note:  Our performance will be in the lower park, just North of the Holocaust Memorial. We are NOT at the amphitheater.  Also, parking is now metered in Washington Park.  The performance will run from 3 PM until approximately 5:20 PM.  Plan accordingly.

There’s lots of nice shade at this park, so bring a blanket or lawn chair and a picnic, and come join us!  This is a very family friendly, action-packed and funny show, and features several local students as fairies, so be sure to bring the kids.  Don’t miss out, because the show closes with our final performance on Monday, Sept. 1st, Labor Day!


For more show information, including cast and crew lists, and to see maps and directions, you can visit Portland Actors Ensemble’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream show schedule.  There’s also a great study guide for the show, prepared by our director, Douglas Lay.
