PLG Arts Daydream

DAYDREAM was conceived in 2006 by Laura Frenzer, PLG Arts President and Rohana Elias-Reyes, a PLG Arts founding member, both Prospect Lefferts Gardens parents and theater professionals. In an effort to make better use of the Imagination Playground stage, they decided to put on a show, and settled on a short family-friendly version of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Over the years twenty-one actors have performed in the show, all but six of whom have resided in PLG or nearby neighborhoods, and seven PLG residents have lent their talents as designers, builders, and seamstresses.

Daydream is made possible by a contribution from the AT&T corporation, public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered in Kings County by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. and ongoing support from State Senator Eric Adams. The Prospect Park Alliance has provided continued support of this production and PLG Arts efforts to bring live performance Prospect Lefferts Gardens and the surrounding Brooklyn communities.
