Tempest Productions will premiere La Scaffetta: The Foundling Drawer, a verse play based on poems by Mary Rohrer-Dann and adapted for stage by Cynthia Mazzant.  Featuring a cast of faculty, students, and community performers, the play incorporates poetry, song, and instrumental music.

Essential to any Grand Tour experience was the renowned “orphan-girl” orchestra & choir of Venice.  La Scaffetta: the Foundling Drawer explores the lives of the cloistered women and girls of the Ospedale della Pieta through the story of a young violinist protégé of Antonio Vivaldi, composer-in-residence there.

There will be two shows, each beginning at 7:30pm, on Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th.

Advance tickets are available via the web site below:

$16.50 (adult)
$13.50 (student/senior)

Otherwise, tickets are $20 at the door.
