"The Tempest"

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Brisbane Women's Club proudly presents The San Francisco Shakespeare's Festival performance of "The Tempest" on Sunday, October 24th at 2:00pm.  The event will take place once again at the Mission Blue Center in Brisbane.  Click here to view the complete flyer.

"The Tempest" has been regarded as the pinnacle of Shakespeare’s dramatic output, widely believed to be his final and most autobiographical play.  The story captures the essence of the human condition with its compelling and timeless themes. Forgiveness versus revenge, good versus evil, freedom versus captivity, and youthful impetuousness contrasted with aged wisdom are just some of the ideas that Shakespeare illuminates with his powerful and poetic storytelling skills. It's a true delight that the Fall 2010 tour of The Tempest will soon be here in Brisbane!

The production is professionally directed and suitable for elementary students through adults. Five highly-skilled actors in costume, with set, props, and recorded music will be performing a 55-minute production of "The Tempest" in just a couple short weeks here in Brisbane.  There is NO ADMISSION CHARGE for the performance, so if you haven't already done so -- mark your calendar now -- we wouldn't want you to miss out on this once-a-year event!

Brisbane Firefighters Update

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The firefighters continue to stay at Station 93 in Daly City during the evening hours - returning to Brisbane during normal working hours - as analysis for a more long-term solution is done in response to the severe mold discovered a few weeks ago at the Brisbane Fire Station.  But this back-and-forth scenario will only be for a little while longer.  On Monday night, the City Council approved the rental of a triple-wide trailer which is to be installed by the end of October at the current location of the Brisbane Fire Station (Station 81 is currently located at 3445 Bayshore Blvd).  But to give you an idea of the route the Brisbane Firefighters take from Daly City to Brisbane, see the map below:

They basically take a left at Carter Dr., and another at Guadalupe Canyon Parkway before hanging a right onto Bayshore Blvd. and entering Brisbane.  The total driving distance from Station 93 to Brisbane City Hall is 2.1 miles.

We are glad that our Firefighters will be able to return to Brisbane by the end of the month - the premiere goal of the City Council and staff, and the Firefighters themselves are most definitely looking forward to spending their nights back in town!
