by William Shakespeare


directed by Dan McCleary
co-produced with Shakespeare Walla Walla in Washington

April 11-22


Shakespeare's magical farewell to the stage is filled with spirits and goddesses, young lovers, old grudges, usurping villains, and ultimate grace. The aging magician Prospero discovers forgiveness for those who stole his dukedom only after his young daughter Miranda shows him the path to redemption in this most popular and comedic of the Canon's romance stories. The Tempest features Johnny Lee Davenport as Prospero and Tennessee Shakespeare Company members Caley Milliken, Wolfe Coleman, Michael Khanlarian, Darius Wallace and Gabriel Vaughan.
