ShakesBEARS: “The Tempest”

Betrayal . . . magic . . . love . . . redemption.

The ShakesBEARS version of The Tempest has it all.

Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan has been usurped by his younger brother and exiled with his daughter, Miranda, on a deserted island.  But nothing is a simple as it seems when magic is involved . . .

A shipwreck casts the usurping brother ashore along with a very handsome young prince.  Will Prospero take his revenge? Can Miranda resist the charm of seeing her first cute boy?!  Oh, and did I mention Prospero is a wizard?

Everything goes topsy-turvy in this enchanted romantic comedy.

After the show, kids will craft their very own puppets to take home!

Recommended for ages 3+
