William Shakespeare's The Tempest
Famously described as Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest tells the story of the wizard Prospero and his daughter, who have been unjustly banished by an evil and jealous duke. The action is set on an enchanted desert island, haunted by air spirits and mutant monsters. Prospero seizes his opportunity when the duke’s ship happens to sail by his island prison. Romance, comedy, and some mystical chaos ensue!

A rollicking time for the whole family, OSF’s Family Theatre programming introduces original stagings of beloved literary classics. Robin Hood: An Adventure, with Music is wholesome entertainment from a bygone age designed for children and adults alike.
William Shakespeare's Macbeth
