Gaspipe presents Shakespeare's "The Tempest"!

Gaspipe Theatre Company, in association with RiverStage Community Theatre, resumes its annual summer Shakespeare tradition this year with William Shakepeare's "THE TEMPEST," to be performed Friday, August 13th through Sunday, August 15th at 7:00pm each evening!  Admission is FREE, and no reservations or tickets are required, though donations will be gladly accepted at the door.

Due to construction renovations at Hufnagle Park this year, all 3 performances will be INDOORS this year, at RiverStage Community Theatre's auditorium at Greenspace Center, 815 Market Street, in Lewisburg.  All performers have been vaccinated and will be unmasked on stage while performing, but for the safety of all our patrons, including those who are not yet able to be vaccinated, all audience members will be seated with social distancing precautions in place and required to wear face covering masks while indoors.

"THE TEMPEST" tells the story of Prospero, the sorcerer and former Duke of Milan, who uses magic to conjure a storm and torment the survivors of a shipwreck, including his treacherous brother and the King of Naples. The travelers awaken on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems, and before long, the King's son Ferdinand is falling in love with Prospero's daughter, Miranda, forcing the magician to choose between his own revenge and his daughter's future....

This production is directed by Ben Hartman and features a 13 local actors and actresses with a combined 100 Shakespearean productions under their belts:  Andrew Shaffer (Prospero), Storm Pryor (Miranda), Emily Ayn Bowen (Ariel), William Martel (Caliban), Ian Keefer (Ferdinand), Ben Hartman (Alonso), Pete Zerbe (Antonio), Jessica Charles (Sebatian), Katrina DelVecchio (Gonzolo), John Stone (Boatswain), Niccdemus Charles (Adrian/Francisco), Nick Buckman (Trinculo), and Ellen McCormick (Stephano).
