Supernatural influences stir in the land, spurring Macbeth and his wife to climb a violent ladder to power. Ambition, fear and guilt collide as they struggle to maintain their grasp and dire consequences for their bloody deeds loom ever closer.</strong></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; padding: 12px 0px; color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6); text-transform: none; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; font-family: Raleway, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 400; word-spacing: 0px; white-space: normal; orphans: 2; widows: 2; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;"><strong><span style="color: #000000; font-family: Times New Roman;"><strong>*Macbeth is a particularly bloody and violent play with some elements that might be intense for younger audiences. Scenes will include: staged-combat, blood, murder and suicide. Strong design choices, including dynamic lighting and sound, will reinforce these story elements. <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Specifically there will be flashing lights, loud amplified sounds, and an atmospheric fog effect. </strong></span>Set in a more modern setting (1980&rsquo;s)&nbsp; may make some of those themes feel more &ldquo;real&rdquo; than a traditional telling might. We recommend discussing the context of these scenes with your students before and after you view our production.</strong></span></strong></p> <span style="color: #000000; text-transform: none; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 400; word-spacing: 0px; float: none; display: inline !important; white-space: normal; orphans: 2; widows: 2; background-color: #ffffff; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;">Commonwealth Shakespeare Company&rsquo;s Stage2 Performance Series provides the opportunity for high school aged students to attend high-quality live theater created with them in mind.
