The Tempest is often considered Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage and shines a spotlight on family relationships, justice and forgiveness.  The production is directed by Tony Award nominee and Helen Hayes Award-winning director Donald Hicken.

Prospero uses magic to conjure a storm and torment the survivors of a shipwreck, including the King of Naples and Prospero’s treacherous brother, Antonio. Prospero’s slave, Caliban, plots to rid himself of his master, but is thwarted by Prospero’s spirit-servant Ariel. The King’s young son Ferdinand, thought to be dead, falls in love with Prospero’s daughter, Miranda. Their celebrations are cut short when Prospero confronts his brother and reveals his identity as the usurped Duke of Milan. The families are reunited and all conflict is resolved. Prospero grants Ariel his freedom and prepares to leave the island.

Patrons may arrive as early as 6:00pm for pre-show picnic with indoor and outdoor seating areas and full bar with themed drinks and signature cocktails.
