MIDSUMMER: A Most Rare Vision


JUNE 16 – 23

An Outdoor, Immersive, Theatrical Celebration at ThorpeWood

12805-A Mink Farm Road • Thurmont, MD 21788

Midsummer: A Most Rare Vision is an immersive/environmental piece that is inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The piece invites the audience, in guided groups, to journey through the beautiful hidden natural landscapes at ThorpeWood. Scenes, songs, monologues, physical theatre, aerial arts, and more, all influenced by the characters and themes of the Bard’s most popular comedy, are brought to life in fields, ponds, trees, gardens, and wood. Each audience group will have their own unique performance depending on the path they are guided through. Our spectators will be immersed in a magical theatre experience that celebrates creativity and community.

PLEASE NOTE: This show will be taking place outdoors at ThorpeWood (12805-A Mink Farm Road • Thurmont, MD 21788), not at MET’s Downtown Frederick Location.

Due to a rainy forecast June 21-23, these shows will be canceled and will be pushed to June 29-July 1.
