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.

this was our first Synetic event, and we really enjoyed it. i do wish that i had reviewed what the Tempest was about before seeing it to better understand the performance. i wonder if Synetic has thought about adding a Greek chorus or perhaps some sort of subtitle to explain the action. in any event, we had a great time. performing in water was particularly interesting as were the costumes, visuals and music. it really involved all of the senses to make for a great evening out. we also would like to comment on the signs pointing out where Synetic was located, the free parking, and the very spacious theatre seats all were excellent. we are now great fans of Synetic.
Splash Zone Seats:
The first three rows of the theater will be in the “splash zone.” Patrons in the “Splash Zone” should expect to get splashed with water from the water stage. Because it’s live theater, this could range from droplets to your daily recommended water intake. The theater will provide ponchos to patrons in these rows.
