Actors from Timber Creek’s theater production classes will perform The Tempest by William Shakespeare on Thursday, Dec. 7 and Friday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. Their last shows will be on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m.

This unique staging is adjusting a few of the male roles, offering a different take on a classic brother vs. brother feud for control by adjusting the Prospero and Antonio roles for female performers.

As a special event, Timber Creek Television will be broadcasting the Friday, Dec. 8 showing live for free at the following link:

The Tempest begins in the midst of a violent storm caused by a powerful sorcerer, Prospera, as played by Megan McCormack. She and her daughter, Miranda, as played by Bailey Collier, watch as the storm encompasses a ship containing Prospera’s enemies. Prospera then explains that she is the rightful duke of Milan but was betrayed by her sister, Antonia, as played by Hailey Anders, and was left stranded on an island. Watch as Prospera tries to reclaim her kingdom while facing many challenges along the way.

The performance will be held in the auditorium. Admission will be $5 per person.
