Marin Shakespeare Company continues its 2012 summer festival season with A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Shakespeare at the height of his poetic skill weaves a dream-like story of true love, fairy antics and moonlit lunacy. Robert Currier directs this outdoor production which transports the action to the romantic shores of mystical Hawaii, where foolish mortals love, play and fight under the gaze of the Tiki gods. The scent of hibiscus and twang of ukuleles will permeate Shakespeare's story of "lunatics, lovers and poets."

When: Sunday, July 22

Where: 1320 Fourth St.

Time: 2 p.m.

Tickets: $50
