Curtain is 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre of Fulton Hall.

Believed to have been possibly Shakespeare’s final solo play, The Tempest tells the story of magician Prospero, deposed duke of Milan, who is stranded on an island with his daughter, Miranda, at the hands of his brother, Antonio.

When a ship carrying Antonio and his family passes near the island 12 years later, Prospero summons a storm (a tempest) to run it aground, sending its occupants on a series of adventures before ultimately forgiving his brother and resolving to give up his magic ways.

“The Tempest will be geared toward Salisbury’s young audience, but all ages will find this mystical world of magic, sprites and monsters and enjoyable escape from the winter weather,” said Anderson.

Admission is $5. Adults receive one free ticket per child. Tickets are available online at and through the SU Box Office, Fulton Hall Room 100.
