Our holiday smash hit returns to the Lincoln Park Conservatory for a fourth year! Don’t miss the “bright and joyful” show that critics and audiences adore. Tickets are Pay-What-You-Can, and reservations are recommended due to limited seating. Tickets will go on sale in October.


September 2018: Fundraiser and Album Release Party

This year, Midsommer Flight will produce a stand alone album of Shakespeare sonnets set to original music. Directed and composed by Midsommer Flight ensemble members Elizabeth Rentfro and Erick Rivera, and featuring ensemble members and guest artists who have contributed to past musical endeavors with the company, the album will be available on CD and digitally. The music will debut at a live album release and fundraising event in the fall. Check back often for updates!


Midsommer Flight is a proud Arts Partner with the Chicago Park District. Both full productions will be presented as part of the City of Chicago’s Night Out in the Parks initiative.

This season is partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
