Join us for the second year of Elf & Fairy Camp! In this week-long after-school program, campers will create their own character and learn songs and dances to perform as part of the ensemble in the Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s upcoming production of The Tempest.
Nashville Shakespeare presents: The Tempest
One of William Shakespeare's final plays, The Tempest tells the story of banished magician and former duke Prospero, who has been exiled on an island with his daughter Miranda for years. He plots revenge on the brother who usurped his throne with the help of the magical island creatures in his thrall and takes us on a tangled journey of magic, wonder, and forgiveness where we find out "we are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep." Bring a blanket or chair and a picnic dinner, or grab dinner at one of the fantastic food trucks on site, and join the Nashville Shakespeare Festival as they present this classic tale the whole family will enjoy.
