The Tempest in sci-fi lands on MJC's stage in October

The Modesto Junior College Theater Department presents a science fiction version of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest on October 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 at 7 p.m. and October 29 at 2 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center on East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto. 

Director Michael Lynch's adaptation of the play sets The Tempest on a "forbidden planet" in the year 3020 A.D. when Earth was divided into 12 empires under several dukedoms.

The play is in Shakespeare's original language with added dialog to keep within the genre of a sci-fi movie circa 1950's. The production incorporates many technical delights, including aliens of all galaxies, starships, a magic crystal ball, and monsters – both human and otherwise. 

The plot features a roaring space tempest instigated by the exiled duke, Prospero, who takes his revenge upon his wicked sister, Antonia, who usurped him 12 years past and had him stranded on a forbidden planet with his young daughter, Miranda.
