Winter's Tale
Autolicus (Kenny Gradert) spins a fanciful tale for the simple-minded Clown (Dan Fynaart) in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.

The Dordt Theatre Department will stage six evening performances of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale for the community on Oct. 18, 20, and Oct. 24-27, starting each night at 7:30 p.m. in the Te Paske Theatre, located at Sioux Center High School.

This play is a beautiful blend of tragic deeds, innocent romance, and delightful humor, says director April Hubbard. In the end, a king’s jealous rage is overcome by grace-filled circumstances that reunite loved ones and reconcile family and friends.
