Tempest Tost

November 14 - 17, 2019

In Tempest-Tost, an amateur theatrical group sets about mounting a production of Shakespeare's The Tempest. Romantic young scholar and assistant director "Solly" Bridgetower, womanizer Roger Tasset and repressed middle-aged math teacher Hector Mackilwraith vie for the rich, beautiful and indifferent leading lady Griselda Webster. As the production moves forward, each man presses his suit with characteristic blind-spots as small rivalries and ambitions are pursued by Griselda's precocious sister "Freddy", the vain Professor Walter Vambrace, his socially awkward daughter Pearl Vambrace, and the mischievous musician Humphrey Cobbler.
