Fifth Tempest. Lyon Park, Port Chester

“The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, solemn temples, the great globe itself!” Act IV, Scene I.

Familiar place, slight change in location. Long time patrons of our shows and returning crew/cast members know Lyon Park to be a home away from home, but rather than setting up camp in front of our beloved Girl Scout house, we will be performing in front of the band shell. 

Tonight's performance is sponsored by Taqueria Picardia of Port Chester

As always, the only cost of the performance is that you bring chairs and blankets, however we appreciate donations. We suggest $10 for students and seniors, and $20 for adults.

First Tempest. Village Green, Rye

"What's past is prologue"  Act II, scene I

After weeks of diligent labor, rehearsing actors and building a transportable outdoor setting, we open on Thursday, July 19th.  

While admission is free to all, we suggest a donation of $20 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Additional contributions will be graciously accepted.

We're happy to open, right in the middle of Rye, in front of one of our sponsors, the Rye Free Reading Room. Last year, the threat of rain drove us indoors.  This year, we hope the only tempest is on stage.
