PLG Arts Presents: "Daydream" -A Fun Kiddie Version of Shakespeare in the Park!

Looking to have a little fun with the kiddies? PLG Arts (Prospect Lefferts Gardens Arts) has just the thing! Attending the group's annual FREE production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream entitled Daydream is a really enjoyable way to spend a summer afternoon! I was fortunate enough to attend the opening performance this past Saturday expecting only to catch a little puppet performance. I was pleasantly surprised by perrformance as well as the post-performance activities. The kids were engaged from the first line of the script until the end of the post-performance activities.
