The Tempest

The Owls performance of The Tempest - The Musical took place on Wednesday 13th July.

The children have been practising hard and the production was outstanding! The characters were played brilliantly and the show was met with laughter, tears and applause - all in the right places!

As you can see from the pictures below the children all look the part - FANTASTIC!

Prospero is a magician. He and his daughter Miranda have been marooned on a desert island for twelve years, after Prospero’s brother Antonio betrayed him. Now, Prospero is looking for justice. He uses his magical powers to cause a tempest, bringing a passing ship onto the rocks. Antonio is among the survivors washed up on the shore, as are several other who plotted against Prospero. We learn of two new murder plots, one of which involves the island monster Caliban, a drunken butler and a jester. We watch as Miranda sees another human being (Ferdinand) for the first time since she was three. Miranda is horrified that – in raising the storm – her father seems to have caused Ferdinand huge suffering. Eventually she sees no real harm has been done, and all are set free from the past by Prospero’s forgiveness.
