Arts on the Quad: “The Tempest”

July 19

Pack your picnic baskets, blankets, and lawn chairs and join us for the Arts on the Quad outdoor performance series!

Flock Theatre presents The Tempest. Founded in 1989, Flock Theatre is one the most adventurous classical theatre companies in New England. Whether working with the timeless words of Shakespeare, Moliere and Sophocles, or more modern classics such as Eugene O’Neill, John Steinbeck and Oscar Wilde, Flock Theatre is dedicated to creating original, collaborative and educational theatre. Flock Theatre returns to Arts on the Quad this season to perform Shakespeare’s The Tempest, an epic tale of shipwreck and magic.

A cash bar and snacks will be available, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own picnics (please note guests are not permitted to bring in alcoholic beverages). New this year is the Thompson Exhibition Building Deck, which will offer featured seating.

All performances are rain or shine. In the event of rain, the performance will be moved under cover and seating will be provided
