The production was staged by the Lord Chamberlain’s Men on the evening of June 6.
Nick Huntington, director of drama and theatre at King’s Ely, said: “The usual troupe of seven male actors donned Elizabethan attire and treated the audience to a fast paced and energetic production.
“Only minutes after the Artistic Director, Peter Stickney, and his team had finished rebuilding the stage, the doors were open for a glorious evening, flooded with summer sun, and much merriment was had by parents, teachers, students and the public.
“We look forward to their return next summer.”
Founded in 2004, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men is the modern incarnation of Shakespeare’s original company of the same name. Performing with an all-male cast, they present authentic productions of Shakespearean plays.
Peter Stickney took over the company as artistic director and chief executive in 2016.
The Tempest was premiered at Brighton Festival, before being performed at castles, cathedrals and stately homes around the UK. In September the company will tour Europe.
