Shakespeare saved his best for last: his final play, The Tempest is his most magical and engrossing tale. It follows the adventures of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted isle abounding with fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance. When a shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, the plot thickens as his beloved daughter falls for one of the castaways. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic basket and enjoy this outdoor production from the Olney Theatre Center at the Root Family Stage. In celebration of the 65th anniversary of the National Players -- OTC's touring company of young professional actors -- celebrated National Player "veterans" will compose half the cast while current company members will take the younger roles.

Reviews & Ratings
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Michael Ryan Fernandez
Firebelly Productions sees _Hamlet _through new eyes, new lenses… taking Hamlet down to its core: a bloodthirsty ghost story about revenge and madness. The original text is made accessible to everyone with a production style that highlights the betrayal, paranoia, and vengeance that surrounds the characters. To accent this, Director Fernandez uses live video, on stage, to heighten Hamlet’s paranoia and to fully immerse the audience in this exceptional story and its true-to-life characters. “Madness in great ones must not unwatch’d go.” Who is watching?
Featuring: John Bonner, Matthew Friedman, Steven J. Hoochuk, Jon Jon Johnson, Sonia Justl, Sean Kinslow, Charley Mann, Theresee McNichol, Charles St. Charles, Shelby Sours, and Arturo Tolentino.
About the Ticket Supplier: Firebelly ProductionsFrom its inception in May, 2002, Firebelly Productions has focused on the talents of young artists. Artistic director Kathi Gollwitzer has successfully trained actors for stage, auditions, and performance-based productions. Her teaching method, which is based on the method created by Stanislavski, creates confident and honest performances with disciplined actors. They are trained in scene study and monologue work using techniques such as sense memory exercises, improvisation, and action / motivation / object method.
Firebelly was the direct result of a collaboration between Kathi Gollwitzer and producer, Barbara Walthall. The two first joined forces on Postmortem, during Kathi's 6-year tenure at Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. While there, she challenged her students to rise above the "just another school play" standard to "professional quality productions." Her work on productions like My Fair Lady, West Side Story, An Ideal Husband, and Singin' in the Rain attracted the attention of locals who became loyal followers and resulted in sold out houses. Sharing a commitment to the training of serious students, Kathi and Barbara founded Firebelly as an opportunity for students to work alongside a group of talented, dedicated, and creative individuals. Drawing from a variety of experiences in many areas of theatre, they provide guidance, support, and expertise.
