Nearly 100 people pulled up blankets, folding chairs and snacks to the steps of the amphitheater in Eagle Square in Concord to watch Amy and Tyrus Lemerande perform William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Friday night. The couple, who runs the non-profit Knighthorse Theatre Company, spent the day at Parker Academy in Concord working with students before performing the free show. They’re offering another performance tonight at 7 p.m. at Eagle Square. This time they will put on their “Shakespere On Demand” show where they invite audience members to call out lines, scenes or characters to be performed in a present day context.
