The troupe put on an adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy for fourth graders in Shelton's elementary schools in early May. The goal was to renew students’ interest in, and appreciation for, classic literature.

The Shelton-based theater company will give free, outdoor performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the public from July 9 to 12 at Veterans Memorial Park (the Riverwalk).
