Enchantment and puppetry in this re-imagined fantastical Shakespearean classic, The Tempest, for younger audiences.

An enchanted island in the middle of the ocean and the storm to end all storms.

Be spell-bound as Moon On A Stick Puppet theatre opesn Prospero’s spell book and out fly the most marvellous creatures. This is a story where fairies are conjured from thin air and books fly like butterflies around the stage. Follow the play’s magical characters as they explore the island and find out what happens when strangers are washed onto their land.

This is a playful, interactive adventure using puppetry and storytelling, transporting the audience to a magical island in the middle of the ocean where wondrous things can happen.

Consider also booking for Stories on Strings Puppet Making Workshop in the morning for ages 7-11, led by the Tempest in a Tea Cup cast.
