Our third production, Macbeth, will have performances from March 5 - 8, 2020 (in the Seaver Theatre). Rehearsals will begin January 27, 2020.
“Something wicked this way comes...” Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, he and his wife set out on a bloody campaign to attain and hold onto the Scottish throne. Full of ambition, murder, ritual, guilt, and paranoia, Shakespeare’s 400-year-old play illuminates and interrogates the destructive effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake and on the public they govern.
Macbeth auditions are Friday, January 24 (6pm - 10pm), Saturday, January 25 (1pm - 4pm) with callbacks on Sunday, January 26 (1pm). Auditions will take place in the Seaver Theatre.
Signups for the auditions will be posted in the theatre office after January 18, 2020.
We will be using the Arden version of the play. It will be available for reading in the theatre office after January 10.
