directed by Judith Jarosz
One of the great romantic comedy plays by William Shakespeare. When at sea, Queen Alonsa of Naples and her entourage encounter a violent storm, or Tempest, they are all washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the powerful magician Prospero who has deliberately conjured up the storm. Prospero and his daughter Miranda live on the island which is also inhabited by Ariel, a sprite who carries out the bidding of Prospero, and the ugly, half human Caliban. Precious lessons about forgiveness are learned, and lives are changed forever, with the help of some of Shakespeare's most poetic text! Judith Jarosz, who also led the casts of our wildly successful recent productions of “The Importance of Being Earnest” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” directs.
