ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- In Central Washington University's Central Theatre Ensemble (CTE) presentation of The Tempest, a wizard's beautiful daughter, a long ago injustice, a malicious monster, a bevy of beautiful fairies, a couple of drunk beach bums, and a fateful shipwreck on a mysterious island all come together in Shakespeare's last and most haunting play. Known for its magic, comedy and exotic locale, it is ultimately a story about family and how we say good-bye to those we love.
