A Noise Within presents its delightful yet deeply resonant production of Shakespeare’s most enchanting comedy. When two pairs of mixed-up lovers and a troupe of amateur players stumble into the forest of feuding fairies, reality is upended as chaos and mischief abound. Anything can and does happen in this tumultuous, dreamlike world. Tickets start at $29; Student tickets start at $18; A Noise Within, 3352 E Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107; (626) 356-3100; www.anoisewithin.org
