The Tempest Is Brewing...
February 14-16 and 21-23, 2014, at the Hangar Theatre
The Tempest will hit the Hangar Theatre on Valentine's Day, 2014!
Shakespeare's late masterpiece, possibly the last play that he wrote by himself, is a perfect blend of comedy, drama, romance, adventure, and magic. And we're pulling out all the stops for our debut production at the Hangar!
Just a few examples:
- Cast members and designers are coming in from Chicago, New York City, and Binghamton to be a part of this show, in addition to our usual stellar ensemble of local actors and theatre artists
- The opening scene will draw on all the technical magic of the Hangar to immerse the audience in a terrifying storm at sea
- The spirit Ariel will be the collaborative creation of no less than SIX actors, along with the lighting, sound, and costume designers and the composer
And that's just the beginning of what we've got in store for you...

NEW this spring! Acting Shakespeare Classes
Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:30 - 8 pm
February 11 - March 20, 2014
Get the same professional-level training offered to cast members in ISC productions! Two different classes are being offered:
Tuesdays: Shakespearean Acting Technique
This class will tackle the tools needed for both mastering Shakespeare's verse and fully inhabiting the text-as-performance. Each student will make an audition-oriented monologue their own, and explore a scene for in-class performance.
Thursdays: Voice for the Actor
Plays are about language — poetic, profane, plain or pretty. So audiences need to hear and understand every speech. In this class, you will learn how to breathe fully, release the tensions that limit the voice, and how to articulate and love the words of a play.
All adult, college & high school actors serious about the craft are welcome!
