"Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble."
The Curse of Macbeth
October is the perfect time to experience Shakespeare's classic tale of murder, revenge, and the struggle for power. Macbeth, a brave Scottish general receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland but only if he follows their devious and sinister advice. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth sinks to murderous depths to secure his crown. Don't miss this supernatural classic performing at the most chilling time of year!
According to folklore, Macbeth was cursed from the beginning. A coven of witches objected to Shakespeare using real incantations, so they put a curse on the play. Legend has it the play's first performance (around 1606) was riddled with disaster. If you say "Macbeth" in a theatre (and it's not your personal, direct line) you must take immediate action because you've cursed the entire production. The way to undo the curse is to leave the theater, spin around three times, spit, say a curse word, knock on the theater door and ask to be re-admitted.
Macbeth has sword/dagger violence, onstage murder, and discussions of murder. Recommended for children 12+ due to all the murder happening onstage.
