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.

A progressive play beneath a canapoy os stars in the ruins site in Ellicott City. An excellent venue for this play! The production and performance was more than I expected. I felt as though I was a part of the Town and gained greater insight to the characters because of the sudiences participation in the "movesable" aspects.
Our Town is also something of a ghost story, with the last act set in a graveyard whose inhabitants either pity or are indifferent to those left behind, and whose most recent arrival is allowed to relive a day from her past. Perhaps the scene will inspire a sighting of Annie Van Derlot, the ghost of a former PFI resident who died of pneumonia during a harsh winter. Such sightings are rumored each year, and patrons are encouraged to bring flashlights for their own comfort and security.
