"A tempestuous noise of thunder and lightning heard."

Evergreen Shakespeare was conceived in June 2009, although it wouldn't born for another 9 months. Evergreen student Paul Purvine directed a production of Shakespeare's The Tempest which performed downtown and on campus, for free. Many of the people involved in The Tempest expressed interest in producing another Shakespeare play, but it wasn't until March 2010 that the Student Organization was founded. Twelfth Night will be Evergreen Shakespeare's first production since forming as a student organization.
