Free Shakespeare—back for a third year!

Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest is our 2016 production. It takes place on a magical island inhabited by spirits and monsters and two humans, castoffs from society: a wizard and his daughter. The Tempest is the story of the old man’s revenge…or forgiveness.

Featuring a cast of local professionals and youth, The Tempest will be performed outdoors, under the stars. Bring your picnic blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the magic!

July 21–August 7, 2016
Performances Thursday–Sunday at 8pm

First Street Common, next to the Zion Lutheran Church
Admission is FREE!
