The Tragedy of Macbeth – A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.

CAST – Creative Arts at Steamer Ten is our Theatre Arts program.  We produce shows with students aged 12 to 17 with rehearsals at least twice each week over the course of a 10 week period.  The cast and crew create the sets and costumes for the show which has 6 to 8 performances over two weekends.
