Boulder Shakespeare Festival ~ The Tempest

Your tale, sir, would cure deafness…

A gnashing storm spills the enemies of the great sorcerer and rightful duke of Milan, Prospero, upon the shores of his island realm, setting the stage for revenge. But from there, Shakespeare’s final, much-loved play defies expectations, erupting into a timeless, exotic tale of monsters and cavorting spirits, love and song, merriment and mercy. Directed by Geoffrey Kent, who created CSF’s 2013 smash-hit, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this Tempest will evoke the early 1800s British maritime era.

This is the preview night, so tickets are almost 50% off! I have purchased my ticket already at the $23 price. My seat is Orchestra 2, Row N, Seat 19.

As of right now, the surrounding seats are still available. If you want to sit as a group, try to get a seat near mine. Here is a link to buy a ticket. Make sure you are getting a ticket for June 6th!

The performance is in the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre, but we’ll meet at 5:30 in front of the University Theater Building. Meet at the entrance facing Norlin Quad, at the bottom of the stairs. Then we’ll find a spot on the grass to relax and share dinner before the show.

Bring a food item to share with our group, for our pre-show picnic on the green, and bring a chair or blanket to sit on.

 For those who might be joining after the 5:30 meeting time, here is the plan:

5:30 –  meet and find a spot on the grass to share a picnic type pot-luck dinner.

7:15 – clean up and take blankets, chairs and stuff back to the cars, and use the restroom if needed. The theater does not allow these bulky items or glass containers to be brought into the theater.

7:45 – find our seats in the theater.

    This looks like a cool idea for a meetup, but unfortunately I might be out of town.

    Yes, but I live at C470 and University. I've never been there and would like to carpool.
