"Greetings, lords and ladies! I, William Shakespeare, will be your host this evening and I have a special treat for my thespian friends! You are about to be transported to a land of kings and queens, fairies and nymphs, music and madrigal, and most of all, trickery and love, for love can happen in the strangest ways, especially on a Midsummer Night! Intimidated by the idea of producing a Shakespeare musical play? Nonsense, with this new version, even I'm a piece of cake! You will create an educational and artistic experience your cast and audiences will never forget. I've made it very easy for you!"
