UNF English Department Presents Second Shakespeare-in-the-Park Season
UNF English Department Presents Second Shakespeare-in-the-Park Season

The University of North Florida’s Department of English, in conjunction with the City of Atlantic Beach, will present “The Tempest” outdoors and under the stars on the UNF Green Friday, April 8, through Sunday, April 10. All performances begin at 8 p.m. with music beginning at 7: 30 p.m. Participants are invited to bring chairs and a picnic supper for the outdoor performances.

The second season of Shakespeare-in-the-Park, this year’s production of “The Tempest” will open at UNF and close in Atlantic Beach. A storm at sea, a shipwreck, spirits and a magic island—these are the dominant images in this beguiling romance. Directed by UNF English professor Dr. Pam Monteleone and music by trumpeter Ryan Janney, a UNF music student, the cast features UNF students and members of the Jacksonville community.

General Admission for UNF performances is $10 and $5 for seniors and students with a valid ID. For reservations, call the UNF Ticket Box Office at (904) 620-2878. Tickets may also be purchased at the gate beginning at 7:30 p.m. Parking is available at the UNF Fine Arts Center Parking Garage (Building 44). In case of rain, UNF performances will be relocated to the Robinson Theater, with limited seating available.
