Graphic for the Tempest


Spring and Summer 2022

This project is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

The National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest presents Shakespeare in American Communities. Theatreworks is one of 40 professional theater companies across the nation selected to perform a Shakespeare play with a professional team of actors for middle- and high-schools and conduct related educational activities for students.

Theatre happens anywhere intrepid audiences and actors meet. Creating opportunities for our dynamic and diverse communities of the Pikes Peak region to gather together in joy is at the heart of Theatreworks’ mission and our Free-For-All program. Free-For-All brings free theatre to libraries, schools, community centers, parks, and senior centers all throughout the Pikes Peak region.


If you are an audience member, bring a beach chair or a blanket and join us at one of our outdoor performances. You could even come to more than one show—chances are you’ll get to see an entirely different cast and have an entirely different experience!

If you’re a potential community partner site, reach out to us! We still have some free performance times and we would love to bring our Shakespeare to your community or neighborhood. Please email Artistic Director Caitlin Lowans about the possibility of collaboration.
