S4K's THE TEMPEST IN QATAR - JANUARY 2013
The shows in Qatar are at the Doha College Auditorium on January 30 & 31 at 8.45am & 11.15am.
As well as being a unique family show, S4K's The Tempest is also ideal preparation for students studying Shakespeare at any level and will ensure that everyone in the audience will have a complete grasp of the plot, themes, characters and relationships within the play, allowing further study of the play from a solid knowledge base.
The Tempest is thought by many scholars to be the last play entirely written by Shakespeare.
Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, has been overthrown by his wicked brother and, after a shipwreck, ended up with his beautiful daughter Miranda on an enchanted Mediterranean island.
Prospero is also a sorcerer and has spent his time on the island perfecting his magical arts.
Eventually it is pay-back time and he gets the chance to wreak revenge on his brother.
He conjures up a powerful tempest, which shipwrecks his enemies and lands them on the shores of the island, but it is a magical place and love is in the air.
Shakespeare 4 Kidz musical version of The Tempest introduces its audiences to a brave new world, where they will find 'such stuff as dreams are made on'.
Meet Prospero, Miranda, Ariel the spirit, Caliban the deformed slave, Trinculo and crazy jester and a whole lot more colourful characters when 20 professional actors fly out to perform in Bahrain.
Tickets cost xx for adults and xx for children and are available via Entertainment Plus.

|What they say about us:|
S4K ROMEO: "We have previously performed MSND and Twelth Night and were a bit worried about doing Romeo and Juliet with 10 and 11 year olds but it was fantastic and they really loved it. Everyone was amazed by their maturity and the way that your script enabled them to really understand the play."
