The Story

A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM by William Shakespeare

When two pairs of star-crossed lovers, a troop of inept amateur actors, a feuding pair of supernatural sprites and a love potion gone awry all come together in an enchanted moonlit forest, the result is an unequalled mixture of entertainment and enchantment. (Rating PG)

THE WINTER’S TALE by William Shakespeare

“There is a disease that can twist men’s hearts and make them mad, and the name of that disease is jealousy." So begins one of William Shakespeare’s last plays—a fascinating and unique combination of intensity and whimsy. When King Leontes unfairly accuses his wife of infidelity, he sets off a terrible chain of events. But this is not one of Shakespeare’s tragedies. It’s a romance, and one with a healthy dose of fancy and surprise. A story of redemption and the strength of friendship and true love, The Winter’s Tale is perhaps Shakespeare’s most endearing story. (Rating PG)

The Venue

All SSG productions are performed at Arts Fort Worth in the Sander's Theater, located at 1300 Gendy St. Fort Worth, TX 76107.
