Gamut Theatre Group Presents William Shakespeare's PERICLES, PRINCE OF TYRE
Gamut Theatre Group's Harrisburg Shakespeare Company opens their 26th season with William Shakespeare's Pericles, Prince of Tyre on November 3, 2018 at Gamut Theatre in downtown Harrisburg.
After unraveling a deadly secret, Pericles, the Prince of Tyre, must flee his homeland to save his life from the wrath of a tyrannous king. What follows is an epic and swashbuckling tale spanning the globe as our hero navigates danger, love, birth, and death (with just a dash of piracy)! Both profoundly moving and refreshingly funny, Pericles, Prince of Tyre touches on themes very close to home: separated families, refugees, speaking truth to power, and the belief that miracles can and will happen. Join us for our fresh, diverse, and engaging take on Shakespeare's greatest tale of adventure.
