A hard rain's gonna fall this summer in Palmerston North (metaphorically speaking!) as Manawatu Summer Shakespeare shakes things up for 2013.

After 10 years at Victoria Esplanade, we are setting up in The Square for this year's production of The Tempest.

Directed by Vanessa Stacey, this production will use our island in the centre of the city to represent Prospero's enchanted island, and you can expect magic to happen there. This will be a high-octane steampunk take on the play that promises to marry Shakespeare's timeless text with some stunning music, lush costuming and our most ambitious set yet.

Whether you are discovering Shakespeare or a veteran, this production will offer you something exciting and surprising.

As always, entry is by koha (gold coin donation), so one thing that isn't different this year is that this is still the best value in dramatic experience!
