Upcoming Young Rep Play
Opens April 16

Stage Direction by Nathan Cummings

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.   

Barring a miracle this production most likely will be filmed and available to our audiences through a streaming platform so all your friends and family will be able to purchase ticket online and watch the show from home.

How will rehearsals work?

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.

Please look below for details about the show and rehearsals.
