Macbeth - Young Shakespeare Company

By Mrs L Gailbraith
 

 

Absolutely incredible! On Friday, four Young Shakespeare Company Actors performed Shakespeare's mesmerizing story of ambition, guilt and revenge in a fast-moving fully costumed interactive production of Macbeth to Year 7.

The play was vividly brought to life among and around the children, at times including the whole audience, to create such dramatic scenes as the meeting between Macbeth and the witches, the royal banquet at which Macbeth sees Banquo's ghost and the thrilling battle in which Macbeth comes face to face with his greatest enemy, Macduff.

Year 7 were absolutely captivated and showed tremendous concentration throughout the nearly two hour performance! The English department are thoroughly looking forward to using this experience of wonder, excitement and stimulus to teach the tragedy of Macbeth!
