William Shakespeare’s “MacBeth”
October 24-26, 2019
WHS Black Box Theatre (scroll down for map)
$10 Adults / $5 Students
Tickets available at the door. Box office opens at 6:15pm each evening.
Join us for our October performance of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, “Macbeth.”
Three witches tell the Scottish general Macbeth that he will be King of Scotland. Lady Macbeth - his wife - is encouraged (and some might say, driven to madness) by this prophecy and motivates Macbeth to kill King Duncan (which he does). The death toll rises as Macbeth is incited by paranoia.
Civil war erupts (of course) and the body count rises yet again.
*Talk back post show on Thursday evening with cast, crew, director, tech director, and fight director!
