We are so thrilled with the amazing cast and crew of our summer production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM: A QUEER TALE! Come see the talents of Celeste Vonderschmitt July 11-21 at Art Sanctuary. www.dragdaddy.pro


Get your tickets now for this original adaptation of the classic tale as we take Shakespeare out of the park and into the dark with this sexually-charged, queer telling of the Bard’s most famous comedy.


With live-sung vocals throughout, this musical version of MIDSUMMER reinvents the story through the lens of our current political climate.


“A moon dance for a marvelous night…” 

- Windy City Times


“… this gay fantasia on Shakespearean

themes captures both the playful frisson of the original as well as its dark menace.”

- TimeOut Chicago 


“…transforms Shakespeare’s midsummer

madness into a lavender romp.”

-Chicago Reader
