A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy by William Shakespeare. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors, who are manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

Performed as written by Shakespeare, Collin Simon has added music to appropriate sections of the dialogue - sections usually noted as songs. The only addition is that of an opening song with lyrics by Liz Muller that describes all that will soon happen in the play.

This version of the play has been performed multiple times, and the songs “Trip Away” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” have been performed on several separate occasions. The most recent performance was presented outdoors with a unique donkey mask ("Steambottom") designed and crafted by Jolene Schafer.
