classic youth theater in Asheville NC

The Moppets present “The Tempest” and “Henry V” this summer in Asheville

We are such stuff as dreams are made on…

The Tempest” was probably written around 1610, and it’s thought to be one of the last plays Shakespeare wrote on his own. It tells the story of Prospero, a duke who was deposed in a coup by his brother.

Prospero also happens to be a sorcerer, and he conjures a storm that causes his brother and the crew of his ship to be stranded on the island where he’s been exiled with his daughter and some servants. Chaos and mayhem ensue!

“The Tempest” runs July 1-9 at Hazel Robinson Amphitheater in Asheville.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!

Henry V” was written about a decade before “The Tempest.” It focuses on the life of Henry V of England around the Battle of Agincourt during the Hundred Years’ War. After Henry is insulted by the French Dauphin, he and his soldiers set out to conquer France. This one’s full of intrigue, action and top-notch dialogue!  
“Henry V” runs July 29 – August 7 at Hazel Robinson Amphitheater in Asheville.
