The Tempest at Casgrain Studio Theatre
Kaleidoscope Theatre Montreal's exciting production of William Shakespeare's The Tempest will have its first show this Tuesday at the Casgrain Studio Theatre, John Abbott College (21275 Lakeshore Rd, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue).
The Tempest tells the tale of Prospero, the rightful duke of Milan, who has been marooned for 12 years on an uninhabited island. He summons a tempest and shipwrecks his usurping brother and the king of Naples' company onto his shore to force them into repentance.
At the heart of The Tempest is an exploration of what it means to be human through personal reflection.
Director Trevor Barrette (Antigone), sets Shakespeare's final masterpiece in the stylized world of Victorian Futurism. It is a world of contradictions, where old and new collide and the line between dreaming and reality is never drawn.
This staging is produced, performed and designed in its entirety by current students and recent graduates of John Abbott, Dawson and Concordia's theatre programs.
This fresh, energetic take on a classic is sure to entertain Shakespeare enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
The Tempest runs July 24th, July 25th, July 26th and July 27th at 8:00 p.m.,
July 28th at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Regular entry is $15 and Student/QDF entry is $12.
