Shakespeare at the Lake Presents The Tempest Set in the 80s Punk Rock Scene

Shakespeare at the Lake, a co-production of Lake County Theatre Company and Mendocino College, is thrilled to announce its 2024 production of The Tempest by William Shakespeare.

Rehearsals are in full swing for this year’s production, which will feature an exciting cast with several new faces. The Tempest will be set in the vibrant and energetic 80s punk rock scene, bringing a fresh and contemporary twist to Shakespeare’s classic tale.

The Tempest is a magical and enchanting play that explores themes of love, forgiveness, and redemption. The story follows Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, who has been exiled to a remote island with his daughter Miranda. With the help of his spirit servant Ariel, Prospero conjures a tempest to bring his enemies to the island and ultimately reunite with his family and reclaim his rightful place as Duke.

How will this fit into the punk rock scene of the 80s? Come on out and find out! Shows are July 27 and 28 in Library Park, Lakeport, and August 2 and 3 in Austin Park, Clearlake. All shows are at 7 pm. Admission is free, as it has always been, and there is plenty of space. Bring a blanket, chair, sun hat, and some friends. Grab a bite to eat, or a cold drink, from one of our vendors, or bring your own. We promise it will be a good time.
