The Tempest

Where
The Warehouse Theatre, 37 Augusta Street, Greenville, SC [ Map ]
Description
The Warehouse Theatre's production of The Tempest is perfect for Halloween. Shakespeare's final play follows the journey of Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, as he is tossed between revenge and forgiveness. Richmond's dark and atmospheric take on The Tempest explores the madness of Prospero's thirteen years of isolation on a deserted island left alone with his magic. This tempest explores his personal storm raging within causing another storm to wrack the sea - ultimately bringing together the forces of love, family, redemption, and reconciliation.

Our special citizens live independently or in assisted living residences throughout Anderson County. Some of the consumers of the agency are without family or loved ones to provide for them financially so our fundraiser efforts are used to help with clothing, food, trips that involve them in the main stream of society, Christmas, dances and general care as needed. Our Special Citizens will participate in the fundraiser and will be volunteering in distributing water/snacks and awards at the event.
