The Tempest Acts 1-5

Watch Acts 1-5 of The Tempest, by Community Ensemble Theatre

CET was two days away from opening night of The Tempest in March 2020 when schools abruptly closed due to Covid-19. Later that fall, our cast and crew rejoined to finish the show as a 5-part miniseries shot in Zoom, making homemade green screens and doing contactless drop-offs of costumes, sets, and props. The result is a visually stunning production—all scenes shot live in Zoom—edited with special effects to create a Tempest unlike any made before. The show features newly retired teaching legend, Judith DeWoskin, as Prospera, and a cast and crew of more than 50 high school students.
