The Tempest

A tremendous tempest causes a shipwreck and scatters a cargo of noblemen across a mysterious island. Little do they know that Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, is at the helm of all magic and mystery. In Shakespeare's last and most magical tale, fairies and spells unwind villains' desires, tie lovers together, and unknot past wrongs. Shakespeare’s glorious tale of magical creatures, love and forgiveness on a faraway island is sure to captivate in our outdoor space, the Root Family Stage. In celebration of their 65th consecutive year of touring, we’ll be returning to an old format we’ve used in the past, in which National Players veterans compose half of the cast of this professional show, mentoring current National Players who take the younger roles. (Recommended for ages 8 and up)

When Dani, a precocious nine year old, loses her hair to leukemia, she embarks on a magical journey to get it back--along with her imaginary friend Raph and fellow patient Marty. Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, Dani Girl is an inspirational tale of life in the face of death, hope in the face of despair, and the indomitable power of the human imagination. With music by Michael Kooman, and book/lyrics by Christopher Dimond, Dani Girl has been developed at the Kennedy Center, American Conservatory Theater, the Festival of New American Musicals, and the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theatre Workshop.
