Directed by Jade King Carroll, the production will feature veteran Lisa Harrow as Prospero, as well as, true to Chautauqua Theatre Company's mission, a company of emerging and established stage actors including Kate Abbruzzese, Christian DeMarias, Chasten Harmon, John Seidman (The Man Who Came to Dinner), Keith Randolph Smith (Intimacy/), Marianne Rendon, Tramell Tillman, Jonathan Majors, Oge Agulue, Emma Duncan, Greg Fallick, Toby Onwumere, Susana Batres, Kate Eastman and Chelsea Williams.
Chautauqua bills the production as follows, "One storm rages on the sea. Another storm rages inside of a man. Will Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, exact his revenge or forgive his foes? Shakespeare’s magnificent last play is a meditation on family, love, mercy, and—ultimately—the theatre itself. With wonder, imagination and sheer theatricality, this powerful production will take you on a breathtaking journey."
The creative team includes Lee Savage as scenic designer, Loren Shaw as costume designer, Jane Cox as lighting designer and Peter John Still as sound designer.
Tickets to The Tempest are $30.
