The Studio Presentation Series

The Studio Presentation Series

The Studio Presentation Series initiated in the fall of 2009 has succeeded in engaging both patrons and artists.  Targeted for specific-aged audiences rather than the wide-reaching family fare of the Main Stage, the series provides community artists with a unique opportunity to participate in the creative process of “trying out” new, more experimental works under the direction of emerging professional artists. This program allows our company to both cultivate new talent and challenge audiences.

William Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST

Thursday & Friday at 7:30PM

Saturday & Sunday at 4:00PM

THE TEMPEST is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1610–11, and thought by many critics to be the last play that Shakespeare wrote alone. It is set on a remote island, where the sorcerer Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to royalty by using illusion and magic. He conjures up a storm, a tempest, which brings his brother Antonio, who stole his rightful title, and King Alonso of Naples, who took part in the scheme, to the island where Prospero and Miranda now live. Antonio and the King believe they are shipwrecked and marooned on the island, but it is really Prospero weaving his magic in order to get the justice he believes he deserves.
