‘The Tempest’ to be staged at Port Plaza, where Lady Washington can serve as backdrop

Shakespeare in parks is nothing new, but Thursday, South Sound theater-goers can check out something new: Shakespeare at the port.

“The Tempest,” a romance set on an enchanted island, runs through the end of the month at the Port Plaza, where a tall ship will be visible near the stage during the annual Harbor Days tugboat festival.

“The port is a perfect location for this show,” said director Kate Ayers, best known for her work with Olympia Family Theater. “The water is right there, and it’s about a storm on the water.”
