POLISH up the cauldron … because something wicked this way comes, thanks to The Other Theatre Company.
The group has chosen Macbeth for this year’s Shakespeare in the Garden spectacular to be held in March.
Macbeth, or “The Scottish Play”, is the story of a fearless Scottish lord, who is told by a group of witches that he will be king.
With the aid of his powerful wife, he plots and schemes with all-consuming ambition but once king, Macbeth’s guilt gets the better of him, leaving him and Scotland in chaos.
The performance will be a modern interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays. The language, music and costumes will be modern, with a hint of tartan.
Directed by Tanya Harvey, a strong local cast will bring to life the mayhem of Macbeth and demonstrate why the company took out the prestigious “Best Play” award at the 2016 Georgy Awards for Excellence in Theatre.
“The whole cast is working enthusiastically to create this modern version of Macbeth, which is a big shift from the Shakespearian comedies that The Other Theatre Company has delivered over the past three years,” Ms Harvey said.
“This production may be different, but audiences will be wowed by our trio of witches, the intense battle scenes and how quickly his guilt sees Macbeth descend into madness.”
Performances will be in the Albury Botanic Gardens at 8pm on 3, 4, 10 and 11 March.
Ticket prices: adult $20, concession $15, child $10, family $40, including booking fee – available through the Albury Entertainment Centre: www.alburyentertainmentcentre.com.au, 6043 5610 or at 525 Swift Street, Albury.
