LAKE PLACID - As part of the third annual Adirondack Lakes Summer Theatre Festival, the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts will present "The Tempest" at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6 at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.
This free program is underwritten by Temptations from Lake Placid Gourmet.
This program is written and directed by arts center Executive Artistic Director Stephen Svoboda.
As with every annual production, the Arts Center is re-imagining this classic Shakespearean text. This year, actors will transport audience goers to a Native American drum circle, complete with headdresses, drumming, and dance.
Using the wilderness as a natural backdrop and stage, this hour-long production will be traveling across the park to public park grounds and natural settings in 13 Adirondack towns. Made up of professional actors from across the country, watch as they bring to life one of Shakespeare's most fantastical plays; featuring comedic sailors, young lovers and a magical battle for the character's very souls.
Those attending are asked to bring blankets and chairs. The rainsite is the LPCA theater.
