Sarah Lawrence College Theatre Outreach Program presents Shakespeare’s The Tempest
William Shakespeare’s The Tempest will be presented at three locations in Yonkers by the Sarah Lawrence College Theatre Outreach Program: Saturday, May 3, at 1 p.m., at the College’s Suzanne Werner Wright Theatre; Sunday, May 4, at 2 p.m., at the Yonkers Riverfront Library, and Saturday, May 10, at 2 p.m., at the Hudson River Museum. All performances are free and open to the public, but the Hudson River Museum does charge a museum entry fee. The performances, directed by Sarah Lawrence Theatre faculty member Michael Early and featuring graduate and undergraduate students, run approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
The Tempest, one of Shakespeare’s most widely produced plays, begins with a spectacular storm conjured up by the magician Prospero, who is exiled on an island with his daughter Miranda. The play is filled with romance, conflict, intrigue, and a murderous plot.
