Magic, revenge, love, and forgiveness, upon a mysterious island -- NORTH EAST SCHOOL OF THE ARTS concludes its 15th anniversary season with William Shakespeare's final play, THE TEMPEST, performing May 3 6, at the Robert E. Lee
THE TEMPEST is the story of the magician Prospero and her daughter, Miranda, who have survived for twelve years, lost on a remote island. With them is Caliban, the monstrous son of the dead witch Sycorax, and Ariel, a magical spirit in service to Prospero.
A violent storm sets THE TEMPEST's story in motion, as Prospero discovers her sister, Antonio, and Alonso, the Queen of Naples, are nearby, aboard a passing ship. These
women betrayed Prospero those twelve years ago, robbing her of her Dukedom by kidnapping her and the infant Miranda, then sending them both to certain death at sea,
aboard a ruined ship. Now, however, Prospero's magic turns the tables on these villains, attacking their ship and causing them to wash ashore upon her island.
THE TEMPEST will feature original music composed and performed by Instrumental Music majors Dan Sanchez ('12), Dan Schumacher ('14), Dan Lorenzo ('14) and Karsten
NESA's production of THE TEMPEST will feature special "thrust" seating on the main stage, surrounding the performers on three sides and placing the audience alongside the action.
Only 180 seats per show will be available. ABSOLUTELY NO LATE SEATING FOR THIS PRODUCTION.
