"How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in't!"

Our production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" opens and closes this weekend, directed by alumna Dawn Monique Williams as part of the summer theatre season at Cal State East Bay. The show will perform on the Hayward campus, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., July 23-25; admission is $15 general, $10 youth, seniors and alumni, and $5 for CSUEB students. Tickets may be reserved at, or by calling 510-885-3118.

The production then heads to Scotland to perform for two weeks at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – one of the biggest arts festivals in the world, dating back to 1947. It takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city, with thousands of performers on stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste. This year will be the largest festival ever, featuring 40,254 performances of 2,453 shows in 259 venues throughout the month!
