Shakespeare to Go presents The Tempest

Shakespeare to go
Friday, April 19, 2019 - 10:30am
Porter College Quad (Hitchcock Lounge if raining)
Presented by: 
Theater Arts Department

UCSC student performers present a condensed, 50-minute version of Shakespeare's The Tempest in their annual performance in the Porter College Quad at UCSC. (In the event of inclement weather, performance will move indoors to the Hitchcock Lounge.) 

UCSC's Shakespeare to Go has been taking Shakespeare on the road since 1984, with a mission to connect with local youth and give back to the community. Each year, a Shakespeare to Go team—comprised of a faculty director and student actors, designers, stage managers, assistant directors, and dramaturgs from UC Santa Cruz—work innovatively to bring a Shakespeare play to life by making it relevant to younger audiences. While the new script is shortened, the richness of Shakespeare’s language always remains.
