Meet the Cast of Midsummer! Spotlight on Jennifer Plotzke (Titania/Hippolita)
Jenn is a film and theater actor who made waves as Kate in a scene from Taming of the Shrew during Classics on the Rocks' Shakes Day a few years back. Her regal gravitas steals the show in every fairy scene - you will not want to miss her in this production of Midsummer, whether she's falling in love with an ass or telling off her husband for (we think?) creating climate change.

At Classics on the Rocks, we believe that just as whiskey doesn't need anything more than rocks to tame its bite.

It's classics served simply on the rocks.
