A Noise Within, Southern California's award-winning classical theater company, concludes it spring repertory season with William Shakespeare's "The Tempest." It opens at 8 p.m. Friday, April 7 and runs through May 21. Previews begin March 31.

Huddled together on ships they yearned to be free and held firm to a promise of a new life in a new world somewhere beyond the sea. Tempest tossed they were; searching for the New Colossus who held the beacon far above, lighting the way to the Promised Land. She appeared — a mighty woman in her splendid glory with copper hues reflecting in the sunshine the promise of her message.

The play’s the thing, at least for one local theater company offering audiences a night of fine art — without the falderal of complicated sets and elaborate costumes.
