Widely considered one of Shakespeare's greatest works, The Tempest is a lyrical play that tells the story of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted island where fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance abound. A shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, and the plot thickens when his beloved daughter falls for the enemy's son. This magical tale about the transformative power of forgiveness has inspired all kinds of adaptations, from poetry and paintings to operas and films like Forbidden Planet. Set sail with a talented cast of youth performers ages 12 and older as they bring this rollickingly fun classic to the stage of HART Theatre.
