This year we present The Winter's Tale (condensed), Shakespeare's classic tale of jealousy, anger, betrayal, and the need for redemption and forgiveness.
This rendition of one of Shakespeare's less commonly produced works will be set in the 50s and 60s. Come watch as Leontes, king of Sicilia, is driven mad with jealousy over the thought that his wife is pregnant with his best friend's child. See the inner struggle of his trusted advisor, Camillo, who must decide whether he is loyal to his king or his own conscience. Journey with the poor babe, whose rough start would make anyone doubt that this could have a happily ever after. Come and see how it all turns out!
