This September, more than 100 Hampton Roads artists from all walks of life will assemble on the Wells Stage via Public Works Virginia’s initiative to present Shakespeare’s The Tempest adapted by Patrick Mullins with music by Jake Hull.
This fully-realized production will be an inclusive, audacious work of theatre presented by Virginia Stage Company, the region’s leading professional theatre company, in collaboration with local artists. Norfolk State University Theatre Company is a producing partner. Cameo performance groups include Teens With a Purpose, Atumpan Edutainment, and Philippine Cultural Center School of Creative and Performing Arts. Community members that have participated in Public Works theatre classes across the region will work with actors, performers, and other professional theatre makers to present a life-changing adaptation of Shakespeare's mystical tale in a one-weekend engagement at the Wells Theatre August 30, August 31, and September 1.
This production is supported by Batten Educational Achievement Fund of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation and Norfolk Rotary Charities
