Synetic Theater’s mission is to be the premier American physical theater, fusing dynamic art forms — such as text, drama, movement, acrobatics, dance and music — by producing world-class theater for all ages, educating the next generation of artists and physical theater professionals, and promoting this distinct form of theater nationally and internationally through community outreach and touring programs.

 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Returns - July 2015!

Synetic Theater is excited to close its season with the popular, Helen Hayes Award-winning play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Spearheaded by Director Paata Tsikurishvili, Synetic masterfully brings back to audiences their highly lauded rendition of the classic play, utilizing dance, acrobatics, and mime creating a fun and relatable adaptation to Shakespeare’s timeless comedy. The limited four-week remount runs July 15 through August 9, 2015. 

In this fanciful production, Synetic’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream incorporates all the traditional aspects of a Shakespeare romantic comedy, including multiple love stories, surprising plot twists, and a wedding.  Yet what makes Synetic’s production especially unique is the fact that this busy plot is clearly relayed to audiences in silence.  With Synetic’s trademark use of movement and connected theatrical expression A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is beautifully re-imagined and will leave audiences feeling as fantastic as the characters in the summer fantasy world.

Tickets are immediately available for Subscribers as an optional add-on at the same rate as the other tickets in their subscription. Tickets for the general public will go on sale in Spring, 2015.

Hi! What is the age recommendation for the Island of Dr. Moreau? My daughter is taking your camp right now and is 11. My 14 year old son will find this very interesting.

Hi! Thanks for asking. Due to the violent nature of the story, this show is recommended for ages 16 and up!

#TBT: Throwing it back to 2012 and our production of The Taming of the Shrew which The Washington Post called a “hyper-aerobicized 90 minutes of disciplined mayhem”.
