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.

Absolutely outstanding - not to be missed!!! I never had any idea that Shakespeare could be so much fun!!! I generally hate Shakespeare - but took a chance on their rendition of A Middsummer's nights' dream - and was blown away by the quality and uniqueness of the performance. I was equally delighted and enthralled by this one - a billiantly executed three person show which satyrizes the works of William Shakespeare. The comedic timing is amazing! Thanks!!!

_The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) _will join the performance roster for Chesapeake-Shakespeare-Company-in-the-Ruins. Three of CSC’s most hilarious comic actors — Scott Graham, Frank B. Moorman and John Miller — perform a two-hour version of Shakespeare’s greatest hits. This wacky comedy written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield unites both expert and novice Shakespeare fans in a glorious romp! Directed by Scott Small, this is a laugh-out-loud comedy sure to please.
