MAGIC AT THE MUSEUM: Players from the Portland Actors Ensemble in a scene from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Maryhill Museum performed Saturday.

Not even the strong gusts of the Gorge could silence the otherworldly whimsy of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream as performed by Portland Actors Ensemble (PAE) on Saturday, July 19. This performance marked the 45th anniversary of the Shakespeare in the Park festival which takes place on the grounds of Maryhill Art Museum every year.

As those familiar with the festival have grown accustomed to, PAE did not disappoint to successfully transport the crowd from the museum grounds to the enchanted forest of the Duke Theseus, which was home to such characters as the fairy queen, Titania,  the fairy king, Oberon, and the mischief of one mistaken servant of King Oberon, Puck.
