Summer Performance Dates

The Tempest

Shakespeare Ensemble

The Tempest takes place on an isolated island where human nature becomes as wild as the environment — with a ship wreck, a mighty magician, two innocent lovers, a monster, a spirit, a drunken jester, and murderers. Characters battle the elements and their emotions, but the calm after this raging storm bestows love, forgiveness and peace. Join us for this wild ride!
