ATHENS, W.Va. (News Release) – The Appalachian Shakespeare Project at Concord University will be performing William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” on the Concord University campus in front of the Alexander Fine Arts Center July 25 and 26 at 6 p.m. and 27 at 3 p.m.

Admission is free and attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic lunches to the outdoor performance. Limited shelter and seating will also be provided.

“The Tempest” tells the story of a wizard trapped on a deserted island with his daughter and two spirits. After a violent storm, and a shipwreck on the island, the wizard’s daughter falls in love with a prince, and the wizard finds justice against an old enemy.

Magic, comedy, and hijinks punctuate a tale for all ages about love, revenge, and forgiveness in Shakespeare’s final masterpiece.

“The Tempest” will be the Project’s fifth summer Shakespeare offering at Concord University. The Project consists entirely of students, faculty, staff, and volunteers from the community and the surrounding area.

The Appalachian Shakespeare Project at Concord University is a summer theater organization dedicated to bringing quality Shakespeare productions to southern West Virginia. For more information about performances, the Project, or how you can assist the Project, call (304) 384-5251 or (304) 573-3132.
