* THE TEMPEST:
Sat., June 1 at 1 p.m.
Waldorf Theatre Company from Waldorf College in Forest City, Iowa, presents a free 45-minute presentation
of William Shakespeare's The Tempest. A story of freedom, repentance, and forgiveness, the play centers
on the magician Prospero and his daughter Miranda. Banished to a deserted island, Prospero uses magic to
conjure a storm and ship wreck the men responsible for his banishment on the same island. Various plots
against the main characters fail throughout the play, with all forgiven in the end. Kick off Summer Reading
by joining us for this special presentation!
