A professionally edited one-hour version of Shakespeare’s play, ‘The Tempest’ that is royalty-free to Drama Notebook members! (3 credits.)

For ages 12 and up

Do you want to put on a Shakespeare production, but absolutely cannot perform the entire play? This abridged version of ‘The Tempest’ was professionally edited by a former Oregon Shakespeare Festival actor. The one-hour script features original dialogue interspersed with narration. This maintains the integrity of the play while significantly shortening it-making it easier for groups to perform.

Similar versions of abridged Shakespeare plays sell for $15 to $100 or more-if you can even find them! On Drama Notebook, it is part of your membership and there are no royalties if there is no admission for performance.

Additionally, students can be invited to choose a sonnet to perform either alone or with a partner between the plays presented on performance day!
