If you live in or around Kingsville, or don't mind driving a little bit for great entertainment at an even better price, head on over to Texas A&M University - Kingsville Thursday or Friday for a free play.
"It's called 'A Tempest,' not 'The Tempest'. That's the one by Shakespeare," said Dr. Patrick Faherty, associate professor at TAMUK and the director of the play. "'A Tempest,' sort of a take on Shakespeare, kind of makes fun of it, flips it upside down, twist them around. A guy named Prospero is stranded on an island with his daughter Miranda. He decides he's going to get back at people who got him on the island, and lures them on the island, with his magic. He does all sorts of things to make them see what they've done."
A Tempest is the summer production of the Arts, Communication and Theatre Department at TAMUK, and thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for Humanity, it's free to the public.
The play is good for all ages, but ages 13 and up would appreciate it most because of its detailed plot lines. You can catch the play Thursday and Friday night at the Little Theatre on the campus of TAMUK. It's free of charge, and begins at 7:30 p.m.
