The Tempest

Carousel Theatre for Young People (CTYP) on Granville Island is excited to present the return of its annual Teen Shakespeare Program show with a week of live performances of The Tempest from July 31 to August 7 featuring audiences outdoors in Ron Basford Park located next to Performance Works.

Performers from ages 14 to 17 have been busy rehearsing hard in anticipation of performing in front of live audiences for the first time since the pandemic in their creatively tailored version of Shakespeare’s 17th century shipwrecked tale.

“I’m thrilled for both the return of live theatre as well as having the opportunity to shepherd such creative and young talent, interpreting the Bard’s stormiest comedy.” – Teen Shakespeare lead instructor Leslie Dos Remedios

CTYP and Granville Island are observing all necessary COVID-19 safety protocols and precautions in accordance with BC’s Restart Plan including physical distancing measures, limited seating outdoors, minimal contact points, and no concession sales this year.

A limited amount of seating is available. Book ahead online.

Volunteer ushers are needed for the show. Please consider volunteering with us!
