This year’s Shakespeare on the Green at Martin Methodist College will feature William Shakespeare’s comedy “Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Serving as director of the play is MMC English Professor Dr. Kayla Wiggins. “’Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is probably Shakespeare’s funniest and most relatable comedy,” said Wiggins. “It has everything: young love, woods, fairies, magic, and a hysterical play-within-the-play. It’s the perfect entertainment for the whole family. While I’ve directed it twice before, it never gets old, and this cast is wonderful. Come join us for Shakespeare under the stars.”

While many current MMC students are in the cast as Martin Players, there are also faculty members, staff members, and community members helping with this year’s production.
