Betrayal. Revenge. Redemption. THE TEMPEST tells the story of Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan overthrown by his brother and stranded for twelve years on a remote island with his daughter. With the help of a mischievous island sprite and a fortunate twist of fate, Prospero strives to reclaim his dukedom through the use of magic.

In Fenix Theatre Company’s signature stripped-down, light-hearted style, THE TEMPEST employs a multi-talented ensemble of Maine actors, musicians, and magic-makers to recreate Prospero’s island using the beauty of Deering Oaks Park, along with fantastical storms, shipwrecks and other special effects. Audiences will be delighted by a host of colorful characters and the abundance of magic, music, and mayhem. Perfect outdoor summer entertainment!
