Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre to stage 'The Tempest' in LR

Posted By on Thu, Apr 12, 2012 at 11:06 AM


If you've been itching for Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre to stage an outdoor production of one of the Bard's works in Little Rock, you're in luck.

The company will present an hour-long version of "The Tempest", which it has described as being tailored "specifically for families and those less familiar with Shakespeare to enjoy together."

The play will be staged at Rivermarket Pavilion at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 29. Tickets are $3-$5 and will only be sold at the door.

The company's season begins June 7, with a "Twelfth Night" at Hendrix College, and continues through July 1 with productions of that play, as well as "Richard III," "The Tempest" and "Big River," which is based on Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." The shows take place at Hendrix, UCA's Reynolds Performance Hall and Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts.
