The Tempest

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Drew Barr
Run Time: 2 hours & 18 minutes (including intermission)

Tempted by spirits, teased by sprites, and tormented by a monster, a shipwrecked king and his party face the wrath of the betrayed conjurer, Prospero - a man they marooned on the enchanted island years ago. But revenge yields to redemption in William Shakespeare’s final glorious gift to the world. Along the magically tempestuous journey, passions are unleashed, villainy is thwarted and a family is reunited in a comic and cathartic tale of romance and renewal.

Generous support for this production was provided by John and Barbara Schubert.
