'The Tempest' coming to Hayward stage.
Alumna Dawn Monique Williams returns to the stage at California State University, East Bay to adapt and direct Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.”
The show will be performed in the Music Performance Hall (room 1055 of the Music Business Building) on the university's Hayward campus, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., July 23-25, then travel to Scotland to perform for two weeks at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – the world’s largest performing arts festival comprised entirely of independently produced shows.
