FREE THEATER: Wednesday, July 8
Rain or Shine!
Directed by Allen Radway
This open dress rehearsal kicks off the CCTC’s 2015 Free Theater in the Parks Series
Wednesday, July 8 • 7:30 pm
on the lawn (weather permitting) of the Twentieth Century Club
84 South Lansdowne Avenue, Lansdowne, PA 19050
In the event of rain, the performance will take place inside the Twentieth Century Club. Please do not bring your own chairs inside the venue; folding chairs will be provided. You are still welcome to bring a blanket if you prefer to sit on the floor.
The season begins on a magical island where the wronged Prospero, a self-directed and self-taught Magus, and his daughter, Miranda, have been forced into exile by his usurping brother, Antonio. Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, has become ruler of this small island, forcing its inhabitants to do his bidding. Directed by Allen Radway (director of CCTC’s 2012 OUR TOWN, and Producing Artistic Director of Simpatico Theatre), this outdoor production, charting Prospero’s journey of self-discovery and redemption will enchant audiences as they witness Prospero luring those responsible for his exile to a remote island where they become vulnerable to the whims of his injured pride. Featuring respected, veteran actor, David Howey (formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal National Theatre) and a cast of 12, this production will make the journey from revenge to forgiveness impossible to forget.
Bring blankets and low-back chairs (outdoor performance only) for comfort. Picnic baskets welcome!
