The Tempest – costumes for children

“Now I will believe that there are unicorns….”

Shakespeare’s plays will always be a part of the National Curriculum and producing drama productions not only brings the stories to life, but enables an easier understanding of the language and stories for young students. 

Some schools combine excerpts from Shakespeare’s most popular plays with each year group studying a different story.

Our set of costumes for Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ are suitable for years 4 -6 and include all the main characters from the Master of the ship with his grand hat, Bosun with his sailors jacket and cap, to a matching set of ten sailors for the crew.

Alonso, the king of Naples has a red tunic and fur edged cloak and his sons, gold and silver tunics with matching breeches. Prospero and his daughter Miranda have ripped clothes, whilst Gonzola has a rich velvet waistcoat and cloak.

Our quality children’s medieval style costumes are versatile enough to be used for any of the Shakespeare plays and other dramas set in this period.
