The Theatre School at DePaul
Prospero's Storm

Chicago Playworks for Families and Young Audiences, the oldest continually producing children’s theater in the Midwest, presents a family-friendly introduction to Shakespeare’s fantastical story of The Tempest. 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 entertaining vaudeville adaptation uses puppets, singing, slapstick and magic to weave an enchanting tale of fatherhood and forgiveness. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
