THE TEMPEST PROJECT is a performance event featuring the talented members of Saratoga Shakespeare’s Young Theatre Professional Company. The project reimagines scenes from one of Shakespeare’s most magical romantic comedies!

Our casts will take you through scenes, songs, and company-created acts which are fun and engaging for everyone; no experience with classical text is necessary for this entertaining affair. Following selected performances the audience will play with the cast, through games and coaching, to bring Shakespeare’s timeless words to life. Each performance will have a different cast and a different re-imagining of the story.

Friday, July 26th at 11:00AM and Wednesday, July 31 st at 11:00AM at the Thomas Amphitheatre, at Skidmore College (located behind the Zankel Music Building).

And join the YTPC for another Shakespeare Fun Treat!
