Middlesex Community College’s Theater Department presents Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” in six performances Dec. 4 – 7, in the Lowell High School Burgoyne Theater, 40 Paige St., Lowell.

Curtain times are 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Dec. 4 and 5; 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 6 and 7.

With “The Tempest,” Shakespeare sweeps the audience through stormy seas to an island where airy and earthly spirits captivate or free us. In his final play, Shakespeare turns to fantasy and magic as a way to explore romantic love, sibling hatred, and the love of a father for his child.

Tickets to “The Tempest” are $15 for the general public $10 for MCC students, staff and faculty and $8 for senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the door.
