Due to inclement weather and a continued forecast of possible thunderstorms, Trinity Repertory Company's performance of The Tempest / La Tempestad, originally scheduled for 7pm tonight, is cancelled.
Trinity Repertory Company's Shakespeare en el Verano (Shakespeare in the Summer) returns to West Side Thursdays with a bilingual English-Spanish adaptation of The Tempest / La Tempestad in partnership with Rhode Island Latino Arts (RILA).
Sit down with a tasty picnic dinner from one of our Farmers Market food vendors, and enjoy the premiere of this Shakespeare classic full of magic and adventure that sports a modern twist. Please note that planned children's activities, as well as the Armory Market Beer Garden, take place starting July 12, and will not be available during this event.
Set against the backdrop of the Armory Farmers Market, West Side Thursdays – now in its 15th year – is WBNA's free and family-friendly destination event that takes place over four Thursdays in early summer. These public performances bring neighbors together while showcasing local artists and musicians, and are a great way to let off a little summer steam. For the full schedule of performances, go here.

Trinity Repertory's English-Spanish bilingual performance of La Tempestad / The Tempest
about The Tempest / La Tempestad
Trinity Repertory Company's Shakespeare en el Verano (Shakespeare in the Summer) premieres a bilingual English-Spanish adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest in partnership with Rhode Island Latino Arts (RILA). Adapted by Orlando Hernandez and directed by Tatyana-Marie Carlo, the production will tour throughout Providence from June 28-July 27, 2018. All performances are free, open to the public and appropriate for all ages.
A not-so-accidental storm causes a shipwreck on a mysterious island, populated only by the deposed duke Prospero, his daughter, and magical spirits. What starts out as Prospero’s pursuit of vengeance becomes a fantastical and whimsical story of love and reconciliation.
Shakespeare en el Verano at West Side Thursdays is made possible by the Trinity Repertory Company and Rhode Island Latino Arts, and is supported in part by the Providence Tourism Council and by Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism.
