About the shows
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!
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!
While most of our Moppets live in Western North Carolina, some of them have a longer commute. Helena first joined us for our digital production of “Romeo & Juliet,” and last summer she traveled all the way from Maryland to be in “The Merry Wives of Windsor”! Since then, she’s been hard at work preparing her application for her local arts high school. And she just let us know that she was accepted!
We’re so proud of you, Helena!
