General Info

The Wells College Arts and Lecture Series is pleased to announce that the acclaimed Aquila Theatre Company will perform an all-new production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest at the College. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, September 25, in Phipps Auditorium of Macmillan Hall. This performance is free to attend, and all are welcome.

 Believed to be Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest is imbued with magic, the supernatural and a heightened sense of theatricality perfectly suited to Aquila’s own dynamic physical style. The New York Times has described Aquila’s productions as “Gleefully engaging...almost unbearable fun...directed with inspiration” while The New Yorker has raved “Beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” With an ensemble of superb performers and Aquila’s exhilarating execution, this new production of The Tempest is sure to delight.

The Wells College Arts & Lecture Series brings a range of artists and intellectuals to campus to perform, to speak on relevant issues, and to represent the disciplines of theatre, music and dance. A committee composed of Wells faculty, staff and students selects groups and individuals annually. For more information, contact David Foote, communications associate, at 315-364-3460 or email
