speed control for A-C electric motor Answered

I want to use a GE A-C motor (5KC33GG101):
Connection Type and Voltage Rating in Volts: 115.0 line to neutral single input
Rotor Speed Rating in Rpm: 1725.0 single full load
Frequency in Hertz: 60.0 input
to run a 50' line on pulleys for a Halloween project but it's too fast. Can anybody help me figure out if I can buy/build a controller to run it slower? Thanks in advance!
