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.

I have been to the GL G&S society performances before, and sometimes they are uneven, but thisTrial by Jury was excellent, and the followup review was truly a romp. Alumni from past shows had flown in to perform, and the repertoire included some a good variety of G& S songs, some performed faithfully to the original version, some a vehicle for parody. There was even an audience participation game! There were truly excellent voices performing in the review, consistently. and the audience demand several encores, which the group responded to. I loved it!
