Read-Along Macbeth

ACT (a community theatre) will host a reading of Shakespeare’s Macbeth on February 15, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. in the Southport Room of the Stratford Town Centre, 234 Shakespeare Drive, Stratford.  Those attending will be invited to take turns reading various parts from an adapted script.

The script has been adapted for an upcoming production of Macbeth, out of doors in Robert Cotton Park, Stratford, in early September, 2012.

The director of the September show, Terry Pratt, adapted the script to better meet the challenges of staging the play’s scenes in various locations around Cotton Park.  Pratt and UPEI Theatre Studies Co-ordinator, Greg Doran, will be present on February 15 to coach readers on delivering the Bard’s lines.

The September production will include public performances on September 6-8 and 13, and special performances on September 14 and 15 for delegates to the Stratfords of the World Reunion 2012 being held in Stratford, PEI.  Auditions will be held in March.

Admission to Read-Along Macbeth is $2 to cover the cost of copying scripts and is free for ACT members.  ACT memberships will be available at the door, as will more information about the upcoming production.

For further information on the reading, contact: Heather Parry: hparry@upei.ca

For further information on the September production, contact the producer, Bunty Albert: bunty1948@gmail.com.
