GreenStage 2017 summer season has several free outdoor performances in West Seattle. The season opens July 14 and runs through August 19.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, directed by Erin Day, will be performed on Friday, Jul 14 @ 7:00 pm at High Point Commons and Sunday, Aug 13 @ 3:00 pm at Delridge Playfield.
One of the Bard’s most favored comedies, featuring a crazy night in which star-crossed lovers fight strange spells and unexpected turns before sorting things out.
Director Erin Day is GreenStage’s Artistic Director, who last summer played Mistress Page in our production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. Since moving from Washington, D.C., Erin found a home in GreenStage. She has also performed with Seattle Public Theater, Theatre Babylon, Seattle Fringe Festival, The Washingtonians!, and others. Erin is a member of the Midnite Mystery Players.
