If you haven't had the opportunity to see any of Shakespeare's tales brought to life recently, you won't want to miss the chance to see "Macbeth" as done by Shakespeare on Tour!
You will become entranced the gripping tale of the tragic consequences of misguided ambition. The five member cast plays all of the roles convincingly, as they quick-change from scene to scene, often speaking directly to the audience, further drawing them into to the magic of the misty heaths, the brutal actions, and the bloody politics of old Scotland. The believability of the play is enhanced by the careful use of music and sound effects, and the spare use of props and simple costume changes. The script is a 55 minute adaptation of Macbeth, performed in Shakespeare's original text, that was created by director Rebecca J. Ennals.
Please check their web site to see when their next performances will be!
