The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey continues its annual summer tradition of family theatre "under-the-stars" with William Shakespeare's magical and mysterious romance The Tempest directed by Joe Discher. Performances are Tuesdays through Sundays at 8:15 p.m. now through August 2 at the Greek Theatre on the campus of the College of St. Elizabeth, 2 Convent Road (off Madison Avenue/Rt. 124) in Morris Township. This replica of an ancient Greek theatre nestled into the hillside of the bucolic campus offers a theatrical event unique on the East Coast. Tickets are $32 for adults and $16 for ages 17 and under. For tickets or more information, call 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.

This abridged 2-hour production of The Tempest is appropriate for families; for lovers of Shakespeare and for those experiencing Shakespeare for the first time. Patrons are invited to picnic before and during the performance on the lawn overlooking this pastoral setting. In Shakespeare's romance, a powerful, sage and exiled nobleman, Prospero, is marooned on a mysterious island full of magical creatures. He prepares to wreak havoc on those who have wronged him, only to learn that compassion and forgiveness are far richer rewards. This mystical fantasy, replete with comedy, romance and music, is perfect for families and people of all ages to experience Shakespeare under-the-stars.
