‘The Tempest’ to be performed at Bushel | Entertainment News

DELHI — Bushel will host Catskill Mountain Shakespeare during its 2024 spring tour of Shakespeare’s iconic play “The Tempest.” The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at Bushel at 106 Main St. in Delhi.

According to a media release, “The Tempest” begins with a sea storm and shipwreck. The play follows the struggles and successes of Prospero and his teenage daughter Miranda who live on an isolated island with a sprite called Ariel and a creature called Caliban. Old foes and family rivals reunite and must face the truth of the past, young love blooms, and clowns run amok.

The actors will play multiple characters and embody the maelstrom of elements, becoming vessels for the spirits of the island.

Director Jay Dunn brings his blend of ensemble movement, physical comedy, cinematic theatricality and clowning to reinvent the timeless tale into an immersive, enchanting experience.

The doors will open at 7 p.m. for the 7:30 performance with no intermission. A talkback session and reception will follow.

Tickets, on a sliding scale ranging from $10 to $20, may be reserved at
