The Fools & Kings Project in collaboration with Riverbank State Park opens its free outdoor production of The Tempest on Saturday, September 10th at the Riverbank State Park Amphitheatre at 4:30pm (entrance at W. 145th and Riverside Drive).

Rutherford (Miranda), Derek Spaldo (Trinculo), Rachel Weekley (Stephano), and Vanessa Wendt (Ariel), with Jeremy Sapadin (Ferdinand alternate, September 16th and 17th performances).

Performances at Riverbank State Park are Saturdays and Sundays, September 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 24th, and 25th, all at 4:30pm. The production will also be performed at Summit Rock in Central Park (enter at W. 81st Street and Central Park West) on Friday, September 16th at 5:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday, October 1st and 2nd at 4:30pm.

The Fools & Kings Project is dedicated to bringing accessible, engaging theatre to New York City and its surrounding areas, with an emphasis on Shakespeare and other classical texts. Simple yet compelling design, combined with a fast-paced, high-stakes approach creates powerful, enticing productions which attract the expert and novice alike.
