SYNOPSIS: The Armadillo Flats Community Theater has never produced what one would call quality entertainment. Abigail Yokle is trying to direct one of Shakespeare's great comic masterpieces, but the budget is limited and the rental company sent costumes for every production except A Midsummer-Night's Dream. Yet Abigail is not about to let the wrong costumes and a lack of talent stand in the way of a bad production. The actors appear as characters from the 1920s, the 1950s, a cat, a lumberjack, a disco dancer, a sailor and a host of characters from other shows. Locals also use the theater to advertise businesses and make political speeches. Other distractions include an audience member who forgets to silence a cell phone and a snake that crawls into the theater through a hole in the wall.
