Macbeth with Lighthearted Twists

Something wicked this way comes…along with a little song and dance, when San Juan Community Theatre’s Family Theatre presents Shakespeare’s

Macbeth this Friday through Sunday, November 16-18.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Some 60 island elementary school children as well as several parents (see cast list below) are featured in this story of ambition, power and treachery that maintains its relevance more than 600 years after being penned by the world’s most well-known playwright.  The play—adapted by Elizabeth Weinstein and including music by Lea Anderson and lyrics by Bill Siviter as well as original music by Conrad—includes original Shakespeare lines combined with more modern English.

Director Penelope Haskew says she has been impressed with how enthusiastic the cast has been tackling Shakespeare, which can be complicated even for adults.  “I think they like that it’s not the typical kids fare,” said Penelope.  “They’re getting a kick out of doing stuff that’s supposed to be beyond them.”  Penelope adds that this lighter version of the drama as well as the singing, dancing and staging, will appeal to audiences of all ages.
