INDIAN LAKE -- Adirondack Shakespeare Company will be taking over Indian Lake Theater Thursday, Aug. 21, to bring two family-friendly productions to life.

Actors will take to the stage at 11:30 a.m. for a free performance of an original children's play, "David and Goliath." The play has been built into the theater's summer children's program that pairs children's books and films with a similar theme for a story hour at Indian Lake Library and a free movie at Indian Lake Theater.

At 7:30 p.m. the company will participate in the theater's Art House Thursday program with its production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest." The play tells the compelling story of Prospero, the wronged Duke of Milan, exiled with his daughter Miranda, who has become lord of a magical island.

Centered on the question of what it truly means to be human, "The Tempest" is a tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness and a wonderful introduction to Shakespeare for any age.

"We've had Adirondack Shakespeare Company at the theater before and they've brought us some wonderfully imaginative children's plays," says theater Director Danielle Shaw. "We're looking forward to "David and Goliath" but we're also really excited to include them in our Thursday night programming for our audience of all ages."

"David and Goliath" is being presented free of charge with the support of a gift from the Stewart's Shops Holiday Match program. Tickets for "The Tempest" are $22 for adults and $20 for students and seniors; children ages 12 and under are admitted free. Tickets are available at adkshakes.org.

The Indian Lake Theater, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, fosters culture and the arts in central Hamilton County as a community screen and stage. It enhances awareness of culture and the arts by showing contemporary and classic films. It fosters appreciation of performing arts by presenting operas, ballets, Shakespeare, musicians, dancers and theatrical groups.
