Templeton Drama to present Macbeth
–Templeton High School Drama will present William Shakespeare’s Macbeth at the Templeton Performing Arts Center. The classic tragedy is directed by 3-time American High School Theater Festival Director’s Award recipient, Catherine Kingsbury.
Just in time for the national election, THS Drama presents a play about ambition gone awry. Scottish general Macbeth receives a prophecy that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth takes the Scottish throne for himself amid murder & turmoil, followed by guilt and paranoia. Enter Malcolm, the rightful heir to the throne, and an English army to set things right again. It is Shakespeare’s shortest and most direct play.
