Build the Tempest Set

The Belfast Tempest is the largest Shakespeare event ever organised in Belfast, and it is part of the global celebrations honouring the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.  We have a number of volunteering opportunities on the Belfast Tempest.  Tempest community rehearsal begins from the end of January 2016, professional rehearsal kicks in on the 28th of March 2016, and the six performances run April 20th to 23rd.

Set building will take place at T13 about three weeks prior to opening night.  We’re going to need to source material, work with the designer and get the build organised.  You can get involved in both set and props building. Volunteer for this job to help build the rafts and shipwrecks the audience will be sitting on; get involved with decorating T13 to create Prospero’s Island.
