In this play, Prospero, wise Duke of Milan, has been deposed by Antonio, his wicked brother, and exiled with his daughter Miranda to a mysterious island. But Prospero possesses supernatural powers. Aided by the spirit Ariel, Prospero uses his magical art to bring his enemies under his control, first by wrecking their ship on his island.
Clear Lake's Theatre Department decided to have two separate productions of this play: one with the department's underclassmen, and one with its upperclassmen.
