A new adaptation of Shakespeare's classic drama made for young audiences!


This shortened version of the classic tale of mistaken identities, shipwrecks, and deserted islands make a wonderful introduction to Shakespeare's language, characters, and stories. Best for children ages 6-11

The goal of this adaptation of The Tempest is to introduce young audiences to the major plot which, like many Shakespeare's plays, is based on the conflicts within families, new love, and the battle between humans and nature. The more adult characters and themes have been edited out.

This adaptation also explores how changing the gender of some the most powerful characters in the play in many ways updates the plot, turning it into a play about strong females and loving mothers.
