Page to Stage!

The Page to Stage program for the 2008-2009 school year focuses on two scripts & productions.  We will make educational materials available, and will create various supplemental educational events, such as open 
rehearsals, pre-show chats, and guest speakers from the mainland.

NOVEMBER 14 - 23, 2008
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Paul T. Mitri

"Something wicked this way comes..."

Blood, witches, murder, ambition--Macbeth is a frightening look at the dark sides of our- selves when absolute power corrupts absolutely. A postmodern, multi-cultural take on one of Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedies.

Grades 9-12 Teachers, click here for Macbeth Lesson Plans for use in your classrooms.

Students and teachers may interact with the cast via the Macbeth Blog
