The opening performance of this show was sold out and deservedly so.

This vibrant staging of Shakespeare’s The Tempest features polished, mature performances by a very youthful company. And to be clear, this is not a group of kids simply reciting carefully memorized lines. These actors have clearly done the work and study required to give full expression to the meaning of the bard’s words and depth of personality to the characters.

In addition to featuring some great physical comedy and emotionally heated exchanges between characters, this show is a visual treat, as the company is turned out in some of the most beautifully crafted costumes you’ll see on any stage. Fresh and creative with careful attention to detail, this is a production of “most excellent fancy.”

— Wendy Burke

 

From the Fringe program:

"Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises, Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight…"

Welcome to a magical tale of sorcery and storms, of fairies and beasts, of fools and fantasy, and of young love and old betrayals. Marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda, Prospero has perfected his magical arts. Now he seizes the chance to escape, and seeks vengeance on those who stole his dukedom. Youth troupe the Knavish Hedgehogs presents Shakespeare's The Tempest.
