Wayzata High School Theatre students are getting ready to bring William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” to the school’s Black Box stage.

The play, directed by Grant Sorenson, will run for four performances: 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20; 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21; 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 22, in the school’s Black Box Theatre, 4955 Peony Ln. N., Plymouth.

One of Shakespeare’s last plays, “The Winter’s Tale” is a blend of political thriller, ancient mythology and modern fairy tale. Tormented by sudden, unfounded jealousy, King Leontes of Sicilia accuses his faultless wife Hermione of adultery and banishes their baby daughter to the deserted shores of Bohemia. Sixteen years later, the now grown princess returns to her homeland to discover her true identity and reconnect with the father that cast her aside. 

In a fast-paced new version, staged immersively and full of surprises, “The Winter’s Tale” promises a unique theatergoing experience that entertains and enlightens, all through the power of theater.
