The first of Shakespeare's great mystical romances, The Winter's Tale transports audiences through a fanciful and sometimes dark 16-year journey. From the seeds
of unfounded jealousy, two kingdoms become entangled in a web of paranoia, insinuation, and mistrust. From the dramatic accusations in the high court of Sicilia, to the raucous and jovial Bohemian sheep-shearing festival, to the revelatory final scene, The Winter's Tale celebrates the triumph of love, nobility, and all things good, and ends with a promise of rejuvenation, redemption and hope.
Seating is limited and pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, please call Susan at (908) 322-4377. All are welcome.
