     Kansas City Young Audiences and the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival are collaborating on a performance of: 

The Tempest: Where the Wild Rumpas Starts      

Join us as we bring to life this classic with a fun, contemporary twist. The play starts with a shipwreck and ends in celebration.
