After a sell out summer season, OZACT is set to return to its Grampians home, the spectacular Heatherlie Quarry with its signature production of Shakespeare's Tempest, a timeless tale of revenge and romance, with magic and intrigue, comedy and song.
As Prospero raises his staff and summons the spirits of the sky, a mighty tempest forms. The quareling survivors of a terrible shipwreck washed up on a lonely shore are confronted by a strange and embittered enchanter, his beautiful daughter, and their strange associates, heralding a journey of dramatic adventure, swirling passions, confrontations and reconciliations.
Beneath the towering slopes of Mt Difficult lie the mighty walls of Heatherlie Quarry, nestled in a serene and beautiful bush setting; punctuated by sandy clearings with remnants and reminders of a vanished settlement. This environment creates a wonderful setting for the island wilderness represented in the Tempest.
So bring along a cushion, and someone you love, or a whole group of people you love and become enthralled with one of Shakespeare's most celebrated plays. The Tempest promises an event to remember.
Show times 3:00pm - 5:00pm. Remember to book early as tickets are limited.
