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.

After the show we walked across the street to the Olney Ale House, sat outside under cover, had MD brews, ribs, sandwiches (fried oysters; beef), and fried catfish.

“Exhilarating…a rapid-fire musical funhouse!” —New York Magazine
One of the biggest Off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time, Godspell tells the Gospel According to St. Matthew in a pageant of clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics, and vaudeville. Featuring an eclectic and sparking score by Stephen Schwartz that includes rock, folk, gospel, and Broadway music, Godspell boasts a string of recognizable songs, including “Day by Day,” “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” and “By My Side.”
This new summer family attraction is produced under the auspices of Olney Theatre Center’s young artist education program, Olney Theatre Institute. The production will feature young professional actors from the finest regional talent and from outside the immediate area.
