Enchanting…a lovely production of one of Shakespeare’s most theatrical plays.
— The New York Times
Director Joe Discher enables us to believe and absorb The Tempest in the same unquestioning manner that a young child responds to classic fairy tales.
— Talkin' Broadway
Joe Discher, one of the state’s most imaginative directors, knows that people who bring their picnic lunches and children here want to chortle and giggle the night away. As a result, his take on The Tempest offers a torrent of laughs.
— The Star-Ledger

Marooned on a mysterious island full of magical creatures, the magus Prospero prepares to wreak havoc on those who have wronged him, only to learn the greater value of compassion and forgiveness. This fun, mystical romance is a perfect opportunity for families and people of all ages to experience Shakespeare under-the-stars!

Performed at the Greek Theatre, an outdoor amphitheatre located on the pastoral campus of the College of Saint Elizabeth in Morris Township.
