I love the theatre and enjoy spending time in Toronto’s vast and beautiful High Park (home to several trains, dog parks, ponds, a small zoo and large leafy trees). When The Hip & Urban Girl’s Guide, a lifestyle website dedicated to urban eats, cool getaways, life advice and exclusive events for the busy city girl, gave me the opportunity to cover the opening night of Shakespeare in High Park , I jumped at the chance!
High Park is home to the oldest annual outdoor theatre event in the country. Presented by The Canadian Stage Company, Shakespeare in High Park marks its 30th anniversary with a new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The play tells the tale of four lovers and a troupe of actors who stumble upon a forest filled with mischief and magical charms providing an interactive, modern, whimsical and comedic twist on the traditional version. This ain’t your typical Shakespeare! The production takes place in an outdoor amphitheatre in a nice quite wooded area of the park. What better setting can there be?
