There is something for everyone in the family this October at Steel River Playhouse. They start the month with a free children’s show followed by the popular Shakespeare comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. 

Bring the whole family on October 3rd at 10 AM or 1 PM for “Aesop’s (Oh So Slightly Updated) Fables”! 

They’re all here – the characters you love including the tortoise and the hare, the fox and the grapes, the dog and the bone, and more!

This is a fun, fast-paced show sure to delight children of all ages.

Rita Pederson, Managing Director, notes “Steel River Playhouse is able to provide Aesop’s (Oh So Slightly Updated) Fables to the community free of charge through the generous support and funding by the Porter Broward fund of the First Presbyterian Church in Pottstown.”

Join us on Friday, October 8th at 7 PM or Sunday, October 10th at 2 PM for the Shakespeare classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”  What happens when four lovers and a troupe of amateur actors find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies? 

The fairies manipulate the humans while engaged in their own domestic intrigue causing confusion and humorous results. This play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular, and our cast brings it to life with a fresh take on the action!

Free reservations are requested for Aesop’s Fables – find full information on their website. 

Tickets for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” are available at the Box Office or online. Check our website for these and all our upcoming events at
