The Lincoln College theatrical department has closed the books on the first production of the season and considers it to have been a great success.

The play was set up to be performed at the Lincoln College Creekside Environmental Center with a cornfield as the backdrop.  For the weekend, the majority of the performances did take place outdoors. It was only on Thursday evening and Saturday evening that inclement weather drove the production indoors to the Johnson Center for Performing Arts on the college campus.

At the conclusion of the Friday evening performance at Creekside, just as Prospera was ending her monologue, a strong wind blew across the audience and stage. One attendee said it was a terrific moment that seemed to put an exclamation point on the whole evening's performance.

Prospera (Alexa Maxey) calls up a tempest to drive the king's ship to her island.

Miranda (Tegan Follis), Prospera's daughter, yearns to be off the island and for true love.

Stephano (Bobby Wilhelmson) enjoys another pull from his ever-present bottle of wine. Even before the play commenced, Stephano staggered through the audience, greeting the theatergoers.

Trincula (Lauren), Stephano (yes, Bobby in a dress) and Caliban (Kendall) are unhappy about receiving their just deserts for their conniving.
