The Tempest!

In April and May 2013, The Hobart Shakespeareans gave twelve astonishing performances of The Tempest.

Hal Holbrook, Sir Ken Robinson, and guests from all over the world laughed and cried with delight. 52 students played 25 instruments.

With Shakespeare's extraordinary language, and an incredible array of music, Room 56 really did create a "magical isle full of noise."

Thanks to all our friends for making it possible. We hope to see you all in 2014 for Cymbeline.
