"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes"
Shakespeare’s most exciting play retold in a modern setting. This All Female modern adaptation by Erica Schmidt is sure to provoke and excite.
On an autumn afternoon, in an empty lot outside the city, seven teenage schoolgirls meet up, drop their backpacks, and hurl headlong into the unchecked passions of Shakespeare’s darkest play. They have created a Macbeth club and using Shakespeare’s original text transcend their school uniforms to conjure kings, warriors, and witches. As Shakespeare’s bloody tale seeps into their reality the line between real life and blood fantasy quickly blurs. Through prophecies and smartphones, unexpected realities emerge from Shakespeare’s dark nightmare of ambition gone awry. These young women discover what's done cannot be undone.
This adaptation is specifically written for 7 performers and an all-female cast; depending on the audition turn out we may have multiple all-female casts.
One of the reasons this adaptation was chosen was its relatively small cast size and we have developed a plan to rehearse and film our show in safe, small and stable cohorts. We will be practicing the health and safety protocols that we developed and used this summer as well as during our last show “The Cinnabar Spectacular” which include daily wellness checks before sessions and to hold rehearsals outside as much as possible.

A Cinnabar representative will meet your student at your car and ask you a couple of health and safety questions and take your student's temperature. Once cleared through the health check your student will be escorted into the theater where they will audition and turn in their audition form and conflict calendar.
Please have your forms filled out prior to arrival. Only one auditioner will be allowed into the theater at a time.
