"The Tempest" Storms M-A's PAC

Original post made by Lyn Napel, Menlo Park: Allied Arts/Stanford Park, on Oct 27, 2012

Menlo-Atherton High School's After-School Theater program breathes new Life into this imaginatively staged version of the Bard's classic tale of betrayal and redemption. Love at first sight traps our young heroine, Miranda, between duty and desire. Can you blame her for falling for the first guy to set foot on the island where she's grown up with only her aging father and a half-human monster called Caliban? But this is Shakespeare at his rascally best, craftily pitting magical spirits against mere mortals. Challenged by kidnapping, sleeping charms, sabotage, and the supernatural, is ANYONE ever getting off this island?

There were some excellent performances in this show. M-A's talent is deep on both ends!
