“The hour’s now come … Sit down, for thou must now know further”
When a party of noblemen and fools become shipwrecked on a magical island, it is no mere coincidence … Prospero has been waiting 12 years for this opportunity, and has plans for them all! This is a wondrous new production of Shakespeare’s final, most enchantingly imaginative play, The Tempest. This close-knit, versatile ensemble, united by their passion for Shakespeare, their desire to create joyous theatre, and their goal to delight and charm their audiences, will present a playful, bold and spellbinding performance. Prepare to be enchanted by the magic, engaged by the trickery, moved by the romance, tickled by the foolishness and set free by your imagination.
