A magical night for the whole family!
Fairytale Town will celebrate Shakespeare’s classic fairy play at the park’s annual ice cream social event: A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy on Saturday, June 28, from 5 to 9pm.
“The Shakespeare-inspired festivities combined with Fairytale Town’s playful storybook park makes A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy an evening that adults and children will enjoy,”
said Kathy Fleming, executive director of Fairytale Town.
The enchanting evening features nonstop entertainment for kids and adults, including live music, theatrical performances, fanciful arts and crafts activities, and all the Crystal Ice Cream you can eat!
Celtic-rock band 1916 will perform throughout the evening on the outdoor Mother Goose stage. With influences and sounds comparable to Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys, 1916 is steadily carving their niche on the American music scene. Touring predominately in California, Nevada and Washington, they play their original tunes, the traditional songs of Ireland and Scotland and rock and roll classics with a unique twist.
Shakespeare Lite, the education and outreach arm of the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival, will perform the classic scene of Pyramus and Thisbe from A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Children’s Theater at 6, 7, and 8pm.
Melissa Paul of News10 and Sac & Co will serve as the Honorary Queen of the Fairies, and Mix 96′s Jennifer Wood will be the evening’s emcee!
My family attended A Midsummer Night’s Dream the last two years and had so much fun! With all the decorations, costumes and music as the sun was going down, it really was magical! We had a blast getting different flavors of ice cream from each of the stations throughout the park and enjoying it as we strolled around checking out the many activities.
