"No other drama by Shakespeare -not even King Lear, A Midsummer Night's Dream, or the Tempest so engulfs us in a phantasmagoria.....A great killing machine, Macbeth is endowed by Shakespeare with something less than ordinary intelligence, but with a power of fantasy so enormous that pragmatically it seem's to be Shakespeare's own."

We are pleased to be producing Shakespeare's Macbeth at the Indy Bard Fest in October. Dr. Kathy Phipps will be the Director, Darby Kear will be the Assistant Director, and Joel Flynn will do the Choreography for the Witches.

Director Dr. Kathy Phipps was inspired to cast the leading roles in rotation after seeing the National Theater of Great Britain's production of Frankenstein online, where one night Benedict Cumberbatch played Dr. Frankenstein and Johnny Lee Miller played the "monster" and the next night they switched roles. 

 

Aidan Morris and Haley Glickman will play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth opposite Nathan Ellenberger's MacDuff and Brynn Hensley's Hecate (Queen of the Witches), then the next performance they will rotate roles. We are only able to do the production this way because of the extraordinary amount of talent in the actors who auditioned. Our theater company won the Best Youth Performance in Indianapolis in 2017 for "Les Misérables" and in 2019 for our production of "The Tempest" at Bard Fest.
