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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Simply perfection” – BroadwayWorld
“The show’s a beauty to behold … strikingly inventive.” – DC Theatre Scene
Lost lovers and their unruly servants converge and conspire in this music-filled feast of love – lost and found, mistaken and put right. Shipwrecked and separated from her brother, Viola encounters Orsino, much in love with the Lady Olivia. In Shakespeare’s romantic-comedy, mistaken identity delightfully combines with the pranks of Sir Toby and other rascals to reveal love in all of its guises.
Directed by Robert Richmond (Henry V at the Folger), the celebrated cast includes Rachel Pickup, Emily Trask, Michael Brusasco, Craig Wallace, Tonya Beckman, James Konicek, Louis Butelli, Richard Sheridan Willis, Chris Genebach, Joshua Morgan, and William Vaughan, in a romance bursting with music, dances and flights of fancy.
