CLAY Festival kicks off with Empty Bowls, Pony Hills Petroglyph Tour, children's activities, and Farm to Table
Virus Theater returns this summer with William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, starring the Silver City community! Once again, fantastical director Teresa Dahl-Bredine will dazzle you with her extraordinary flair for theatrical adventure.
Shakespeare’s comedy aims to enthrall you with love and folly! In traditional Virus Theater style, don’t be surprised if you are entertained beyond your wildest dreams in this wedding of all weddings extravaganza! Our fairy kingdom stars eleven of Silver City’s children and a beautiful fairy queen, not to mention a fairy trickster or two that may titillate us all. Kick back and watch the players give you a hilarious version of this play within a play and, of course, the lovers and all of their woes. Costumes by well-known artist Cecilia Stanford will leave you breathless!
To top it all off, all shows will be at the downtown El Sol Theater at 406 North Bullard Street!
