THE TEMPEST by the Hawaii Shakespeare Festival


The Tempest

The ARTS at Marks Garage

July 12-July 28

Thu-Sat at 7:30pm, Sun at 3:30pm

The Hawaii Shakespeare Festival’s (HSF) eighteenth season kicks off with Shakespeare’s final masterpiece, The Tempest, opening July 12. Next up is Much Ado About Nothing, opening August 1. The season concludes with Shakespeare’s dark tragedy, Macbeth, opening August 9.

Jordan Cho, first-time director with HSF, helms our season opener The Tempest at The ARTS at Marks Garage. Cho incorporates elements from tarot and sacred geometry in order to connect the magic of the play with a more modern, mystic aesthetic. Lala Buzzell stars as the wizard Prospera with HSF newcomer Makena Duffy as her sprite Ariel. Sean-Joseph Choo plays the creature Caliban and also composes original music for the show.

New this season is that all shows will run for three weekends each, so more chances to see all of the shows! Advance tickets for The Tempest and Macbeth are $20 online at until two hours prior to each performance. $15 Discounted tickets are available for Thursday performances. Ticket prices increase by $5 if you pay at the door.
