June 5th, 2022 2:00 PM: "The Tempest"
Limbach Park

In summer 2022, Theatreworks again brings accessible theatre to the vibrant communities of the Pikes Peak region through our Free-For-All program. Piloted in summer 2019, Free-For-All's mission is creating opportunities for the dynamic and diverse communities of Pikes Peak to gather and celebrate through live theatre. After a spring of successful school residencies and performances, Theatreworks will tour a free 75-minute adaptation of "The Tempest” beginning May 13, to libraries, community centers, and parks to sites in El Paso, Teller, Fremont and Elbert Counties.

 This adaptation of “The Tempest” will feature all original Shakespearean text, retold in a fun, physical, fast-paced, family friendly production perfect for a summer outing. Featuring a duke-turned-sorcerer exacting revenge, malcontent spirits, traitorous family members, young lovers, and a hefty dose of magical hijinks, the story promises gasps and laughs in equal measure. Six actors play multiple roles in this hilarious romp. In Free-For-All's unique casting model, all actors learn multiple roles and multiple actors learn each part; audience members who see the show multiple times may never see the same cast twice! For our outdoor performances, we encourage all to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic with us as they enjoy this classic comedy.
