Bite-sized Shakespeare: An abridged version of the iconic Shakespeare comedy, Midsummer 90 drops the Night’s Dream and retains all the humor and wonder of the original script without sacrificing its spellbinding storytelling. By packing the fairies, magic, and fantastical animals into
a performance that clocks in under two hours, the play is perfect for children and adults alike.

Through 9/29. $20-59, 2pm. Blackfriars Playhouse, 10 S. Market St., Staunton. (540) 885-5588.
