Donít miss out on all the fun at the Syracuse Shakespeare Festivalís 7th annual, free show, The Tempest, in the beautiful Thornden Park Amphitheatre. There will be entertainment for people of all ages both on stage and off. Bring a picnic and the whole family.

Tony Brown is directing some of the finest talent the community stage offers in Syracuse as Tony Bersani portrays the magical and wronged Duke of Milan, Prospero, Binaifer Dabu plays his ever present though not always seen sprite, Ariel, Basil Allen (Ferdinand) is the presumed lost son of Queen Alonsa (Kathy Egloff) and Grace Wagner, a student at West Genesee HS, makes her feature role debut with SSF as Prosperoís beautiful, island-sheltered daughter, Miranda.

Co-sponsored by Syracuse Parks, Recreation & Youth Programs Dept. and generously supported by a CNYCF PACE grant, the show is produced by Ronnie Bell, the Producing Artistic Director of SSF.
