Wizard Prospero wields crashing sea-storms, airy spirits, savage ghost hounds, and terrifying creatures to exact revenge on his enemies—trapping them on his magical island. Will he learn mercy from his teenage daughter, or sink everyone into the sea? This vaudeville adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest uses puppets, singing, slapstick, and magic to weave an enchanting tale of fatherhood and forgiveness.
