The Tempest is one of William Shakespeare’s most enjoyable and magical plays. It’s stormy, seductive – you might even call it tempestuous. With themes of love, revenge, and coming to terms with human use of supernatural power, you will find this performance absolutely spellbinding! The last play that the great Bard wrote is often considered his best!

Our History Comes Alive series, which we presented earlier this year, was so well received that we decided to do it again with two completely new subjects as our opening production for the 2014 – 2015 season.

First up, in collaboration with JTL Productions, will be Teddy: Rough Rider President, written, directed and produced by John Lynd and starring Mike Hanrahan as Theodore Roosevelt. Filled with anecdotes and philosophies of this fascinating public figure who was part adventurer, part environmentalist and part politician, Teddy entertains as much as it informs us about his life and legacy. Teddy: Rough Rider President will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 12 and Saturday, September 13 and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 14, 2014.

The following weekend, we will present, in collaboration with Blake Productions, Shattered Ceilings: Women Who Changed America. This show spotlights an array of remarkable women, all of whom made significant contributions to our nation despite obstacles of inequality. Shattered Ceilings: Women Who Changed America will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 19, and Saturday, September 20, and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 21, 2014.

All performances will be at the Beaumont Womens Club Community Center, 306 E. Sixth Street (at the corner of Sixth and Euclid, one block west of Beaumont Ave.) in Beaumont.

Admission to each of the performances is $12 per person. If you would like to attend a performance of each of productions, Teddy & Shattered Ceilings, the combined admission is $20 if purchased in advance.
