Event Details

Jobsite is thrilled to continue our commitment to making the Bard accessible to regional audiences with this delightful fantasy. Our production reimagines the character of Prospero as a woman, to be played by Jobsite ensemble veteran Roxanne Fay. Roxanne has previously been seen in our humble cockpit as Touchstone in As You Like It, Feste in Twelfth Night, and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing as well as Madame in our Best of the Bay Award winning production of The Maids.

On a distant island a woman waits. Robbed of her position, power, and wealth her enemies have left her in isolation. But this is no ordinary woman, nor an ordinary island. She is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to her will. When the vessel carrying those who wronged her appears in the distance, she creates a vast magical storm to bring them to her – then they awake finding themselves in a place where nothing is as it seems.

Jobsite will again double the number of daytime matinees made available to middle and high schools with their Shakespeare program in 2018 for a total of 12 to take place over a period of four weeks. Even our regularly scheduled performances are the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young theatergoers and families!
