Switchyard Theatre Company Presents: The Tempest

Prospero the exiled magician and her teenage daughter Miranda live on a desert island, with nothing but airy spirits (and Caliban the monster) for company.  But one night, a magical storm brings them a ship full of characters from Prospero’s past – the King of Naples, his handsome son Ferdinand, their scheming courtiers, and Prospero’s own treacherous brother Antonio. Can young love manage to bloom while the humans fight for power and the magical creatures for their freedom? 

Come and enjoy this classic tale in a family-friendly outdoor format! Audience members are encouraged to bring food and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as comfortable seating.
