Berkeley Public Library welcomes the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival as they present the touring company’s presentation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Saturday, January 26, 2013, 2 p. m. at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge (at Shattuck). The free performance will take place in the library’s third floor Community Meeting Room. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is perhaps the most popular of Shakespeare’s comedies. With impetuous lovers, quarreling fairies and the sheer slapstick energy of the Mechanicals’ play within a play, there’s something for everyone. The 55 minute touring production presents a cast of professional actors in costume, with set, props, and recorded music. After the play, the cast will meet with the audience for a question and answer session. For questions regarding this program, call 510-981-6139. This program is sponsored by Friends of the Berkeley Public Library (www.berkeley.library/friends.org). For accessibility information, call 510-981-6107, TTY (510) 528-1240, http://berkeleypubliclibrary.org.
