“MACBETH” ONSTAGE @ OLNEY THEATRE CENTER THIS WEEKEND ONLY

Sometime in his or her high school career, your student will read “Macbeth.” What a treat to take him or her to see the play performed on state…not just read the words on the page. As a former high school English teacher, seeing a Shakespeare play production will change the way your child views the Bard and can help his or her grade in English class:

THIS WEEKEND ONLY

MACBETH

WHEN: Friday, 9/6 at 7:30 PM and Saturday (9/7) at 8:00 PM
WHERE: on the Olney Theatre Center Historic Stage, 2001 Olney-Sandy Springs Road, Olney, MD

For an ambitious couple gripped with murderous thoughts, reality proves to be elastic. Witches, floating daggers, moving forests, and blood that refuses to wash away—who can tell what is real and what is imagined? Shakespeare's twisted tale examines the brutal consequences of unchecked ambition.

From September thru May 2014, National Players will tour its repertory of The Odyssey, Macbeth, and The Comedy of Errors around the country. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
