The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College calls for FLC students and actors from the community to audition for its spring production of A Midsummer Night's Dream on January 27 and 28, 2020. All skill levels encouraged to audition.

The Falcon's Eye takes flight within El Dorado County as we present the best of Shakespeare, under the stars for the first time! Innovative Director Jamie Van Camp leads the company in an all-new production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. In partnership with David Girard Vineyards, we present Shakespeare's most-loved comedy surrounded by all of our region's glorious beauty. This will be a night to remember!
