The Tempest at Loch Ard Gorge

Sword vs magic in Ozact's The Tempest at Loch Ard Gorge

Prepare to be spellbound as OZACT presents THE TEMPEST, Shakespeare's timeless tale of magic, mystery and mayhem. The quarreling survivors of a terrible shipwreck washed up on a lonely shore are confronted by this strange and embittered enchanter, his beautiful daughter, and their strange associates, heralding a journey of dramatic adventure, swirling passions, confrontations and reconciliations.


Loch Ard Gorge is situated in the Port Campbell National Park, and is one of the highlights along the Great Ocean Road. It is also the historic site where the only two survivors from the Loch Ard shipwreck washed ashore in 1878.


This production will run for one weekend ONLY in January 2020.
