Kick-off the season in style at the Midsummer pre-show party

Join us as we kick off the 10th anniversary season in style! $100 ticket will get you entrance to opening night of A Midsummer Night's Dream, a delicious buffet of hearty appetizers, wine, beer, coffee, and tea, and an opportunity to hear from founding artistic director Matt Chiorini about his experience starting and running AST 10 years ago. All this, and a chance to mingle with the stars of the 2016 season! Starting at 5 pm, a shuttle will be available to transport guests to the Baum Gallery for a tour of First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare, an exhibit featuring one of the rare original copies of his collected plays. Then back to the President's House for appetizers and mingling, followed by the premiere performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream outdoors on The Lawn of McAlister Hall on the campus of University of Central Arkansas, beginning at 7:30 pm.
