William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” will be presented six times at Nevada Union High School’s Don Baggett Theatre.

The Nevada Union Theatre Society presents the musical comedy tonight through Sunday and then again Nov. 15 and 16.

Twenty-six students are in the cast, and more than 15 students work behind the scenes.

The actresses wear druid costumes, and the actors wear Victorian costumes. Director Kim Culbertson incorporated these costume changes to represent the culture clash between the islanders and those who become shipwrecked on the island. Pop music, including songs by Madonna and Michael Jackson, plays in the background.

Tonight’s performance is at 5, and Sunday’s is at 2 p.m. All other performances are at 8 p.m.

The theater is at 11761 Ridge Road, Grass Valley.

Admission is $8 adults, $6 students and $5 for NUHS students. Tickets are at the Book Seller, the school’s student store, the door or by calling the drama department at 273-4431, ext. 437.
