Shakespeare in NB Presents: The Tempest
In Partnership with Reverie Theatre Group
Celebrating its fourth year of bringing the Bard’s most poignant plays to audiences of all ages and walks of life, RTG will be producing a powerful and timely rendition of The Tempest. Experience the comic tale of Prospero, the overthrown duke of Milan, who maroons his betrayers on a magical island where he creates spells and enchantments that toy with the evildoers until they promise to return him to his throne. RTG’s Megan M. Ruggiero directs this story of romance, ambition, revenge, love, and ultimately, forgiveness. Donations of any amount are accepted in lieu of a fee.
This program is supported in part by grants from the Acushnet, Dartmouth, Mattapoisett, Fairhaven, and New Bedford Cultural Councils, local agencies, which are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
This project received a Wicked Cool Places grant, facilitated by New Bedford Creative and the NBEDC, and funded by the City of New Bedford’s Arts, Culture and Tourism Fund, with additional support from Bristol County Savings Bank, Barr Foundation, Mass Cultural Council, and MassDevelopment’s TDI Creative Cities Initiative.
