Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square

Macbeth

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles Fee

Run Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

For this production, we will transform the Hanna Theatre into an Elizabethan theater, including NEW SEATING SECTIONS ON STAGE - surrounding the playing area and creating an immersive experience for audiences! Consider ONSTAGE seating when planning your visit to enjoy the fullness of this unique production. (Onstage seats are padded benches with backs similar in style to church pews. The bench seat is padded. Seating is assigned.)

Synopsis:
In a maelstrom of politics and magic, Shakespeare's towering tragedy melds unforgettable characters and incomparable language in a fascinating drama of corruption and heroism. We invite you to join us for an eerie evening of dazzling darkness, where specters and riddles foretell the futures of kings. But beware: "something wicked this way comes."

The National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest presents Shakespeare in American Communities. Great Lakes Theater is one of 40 professional theater companies selected to participate in bringing the finest productions of Shakespeare to middle and high school students in communities across the United States.

Generous support for MACBETH was provided by John and Barbara Schubert.
