Visiting Artist Series Welcomes Back the Idaho Shakespeare Festival

Published: January 25, 2024

Join College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Visiting Artist Series in welcoming the Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s (ISF) Shakespearience program as they perform the play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and host an acting workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

Students and community members are invited to take part as the Idaho Shakespeare Festival breathes life into one of Shakespeare’s timeless classics, A Midsummer Night's Dream, with a captivating blend of tradition and modernity to present the beloved tale.


“The course of true love never did run smooth”

In one of William Shakespeare’s most popular works, we follow two couples into the Forest of Athens, where they unknowingly become caught up in the magic and mischief of the Fairies who call it home. While hilarity ensues, a rag-tag group of wannabe actors also use the forest to rehearse their upcoming play for the Duke’s wedding, only making matters worse! Taking place all in one summer night, this timeless tale is filled with magic, love, and a whole lot of laughs along the way!

Following the performance, the ISF cast and crew will host a free hour-long acting workshop for audience members.

The performance is suitable for all ages and will be sign-interpreted (ASL).
