South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities Fall Main Stage Production: The Winter's Tale
Drama seniors at the Governor's School will perform one of Shakespeare's last plays, The Winter's Tale, which pits envy and hubris against grace and time. Stricken with jealousy, Leontes, the King of Sicilia, imprisons his queen and condemns his friend, the King of Bohemia. He defies the wisdom of the Oracle of Delphi, and his realm is frozen in a perpetual winter. His insistence on absolute authority costs him his family, friends, reputation, self-respect, and bliss. Only chance, fortune, and human kindness can save him from his self-crafted abyss. Reservations are encouraged and may be made the week prior to the performances by calling the Drama Box Office at 864.282.3737.
