... the costumes are simple, colorful and evoke another period. And the original music by Stewart is beautiful and really enhances the period, feel and look of the show... She cast the play well, kept it moving and, doing it outdoors, is a good idea for this play.

What an enchanting evening. The cast was well rehearsed and made the play a wonderful bit of entertainment. Bravo to the Cast. . .and the musicians ( I loved the undertones of the drum sounds to augment the arguments and tenseness of the scene) And a special thank you for the fairies playing with my granddaughter. Huzzah!

I enjoyed [this] very energetic,comical, acrobatics-filled adaptation of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM outdoors in Beaverton by Experience Theatre Project. The many changes in the text made the play more accessible to new audience members, and the many children who came seemed to be enjoying the play and cheering on the characters, especially in the most physical scenes. It was a delight to watch the fairies with their songs and acrobatics. Characters often played with the audience, even borrowing items from them or eating a bit of their food. I laughed a whole lot and was glad to see so many families and young people enjoying live theatre.
