Jennifer Lines stars as Ariel in "The Tempest" presented in Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival's 25th anniversary season, Thursday, June 12, through Sept. 18 at Vancouver, B.C.'s Vanier Park.

The magical romance plays in repertory with "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in Bard's 733-seat custom-built Mainstage Theatre tent.

Magic and intrigue are at the heart of this fantastical romance. Prospero, a magician and the exiled Duke of Milan, lives on an enchanted island with his daughter Miranda, the spirit Ariel, and the slave Caliban. Prospero escaped years ago to the island, fleeing from his usurping brother Antonio, and Alonso, King of Naples.

Now he's conjured up a storm that shipwrecks his old enemies on the island's shores. As Ariel and Prospero weave their magic, new alliances form, murder plots brew, and romance blossoms between Miranda and King Alonso's son Ferdinand.
