Canadian Stage presents William Shakespeare’s classic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream as the 30th anniversary Shakespeare in High Park production (formerly called the Dream in High Park). With a royal wedding looming, this light-hearted tale follows the adventures of four lovers and a group of amateur actors as they stumble through a mysterious and enchanted evening. Featuring a talented local cast and performed under the stars in High Park, this pay-what-you-can, family-friendly event is one of Toronto’s favourite summer traditions.
Admission This general-admission event is free for children 14 and under and pay-what you-can for adults ($20 suggested minimum donation). Food, beverages and blankets are available for purchase. No Pets Please With exception to service and guide dogs, pets are not allowed in the High Park Amphitheatre. Getting to the High Park Amphitheatre High Park is located in Toronto's west end, stretching from Bloor Street west in the north to The Queensway in the south and from Parkside Drive in the east to Ellis Avenue in the west. The Amphitheatre is located just east of the Grenadier Restaurant, almost in the centre of the park. If you’re not within walking distance of the park, you can get there by TTC Transit, by car or by bike. Rain Cancellation Cancellations due to rain and/or lightning are assessed at 8 pm. If the show cannot carry on safely without the endangerment of cast or audience members, the show will be cancelled and you can request a voucher for complimentary admission to another performance.
