WESTERLY — The Colonial Theatre of Rhode Island has more than an updated name and a brand new website.

The theatre company, which has been bringing Shakespeare to Wilcox Park since 1991, has some good news. The theatre company will produce "A Midsummer Night's Dream," in Wilcox Park this summer, following last season's hiatus.

The announcement was made Monday night at an ice cream social held at Mel's Downtown Creamery in Pawcatuck.

"We are thrilled," said Nicholas Moore, vice president of the Colonial's board of directors. "We are just so excited to be continuing this great tradition in Wilcox Park and to be working with the Westerly Public Schools.
