The Trinity Shakespeare Festival begins June 10 with a pay-what-you-can-preview production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

The festival, which features alternative showings of Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Comedy of Errors, runs through June 29.

The Tempest, Shakespeare’s final play, which combines humor, romance and magic, will be directed by Trinity Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director T.J. Walsh, according to the event’s website. The preview for A Comedy of Errors, directed by Dallas Theater Center’s Associate Artistic Director Joel Ferrell, is scheduled for June 11.

Both pay-what-you-can previews are sold out, according to the box office. However, tickets for the other shows can be purchased for $10 to $25.

During the festival, there will be nine showings of The Tempest in TCU’s Hays Theatre at 2800 South University Drive. Showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. with the exception of a June 22 matinee scheduled for 2:30 p.m., according to the event website. There will also be nine showings of A Comedy of Errors. Those performances will be held in Buschman Theatre and will begin at 7:30 p.m., except for the matinees, which will be held at 2:30 p.m. on June 15 and June 29.
