The Tempest

William Shakespeare

Drama, Young Audiences | May 5 – May 12

Sorcerers, sprites and spirits meet villains, and
monsters, and kings in Shakespeare’s tragicomedy set on a remote island
complete with a shipwreck. Romance and a raging storm end in revelations, redemption and marriage as Shakespeare’s plays so often do.

MMT’s shortened adaptation of the original script, an excellent introduction to Shakespeare for Middle and High School students, will be acted by MMT Conservatory students. In conjunction with this production, MMT will distribute free books to student audience members, as part of our initiative connecting theatre to literacy.

Performed on the Waldron Stage at 20 Church Ave, SE.
