The weather gets rough, Gilligan foils the best-laid of the castaways' rescue plans… romance develops… the castaways have an out-of-this-world encounter… It’s fun, wacky and entertaining with 18 original, tuneful and memorable songs.

The Tempest

Ray E. Karrer Theater

This is thought to be one of the last plays that Shakespeare wrote alone. After the first scene, which takes place on a ship at sea during a tempest, the rest of the story is set on a remote island, where the sorcerer Prospero, a complex and contradictory character, lives with his daughter Miranda, and his two servants — Caliban, a savage monster figure, and Ariel, an airy spirit. The play contains music and songs that evoke the spirit of enchantment on the island. It explores many themes including magic, betrayal, revenge, and family.

General Admission tickets are $15, $10 tickets for high school students and senior citizens with ID, or free with current PJC ID (accepting cash or check only).
