Parkland Presents Mac Beth Opens September 28

Parkland Second Stage Theatre to Present Mac Beth

Champaign, Ill. --- Mac Beth adapted by Erica Schmidt from Macbeth by William Shakespeare and directed by Mathew Green, comes to the Parkland Second Stage Theatre, September 28-October 8.

Mac Beth is the story of seven students from an all-girls prep school, who gather in an abandoned lot to stage their own DIY Macbeth. As they do, fantasy seeps into reality, and things take a very surprising turn. Erica Schmidt has recontextualized the classic text into a slick, brash, youthful, and streamlined (90 minutes, no intermission) telling that shines a light on the ferocity of adolescence, as well as the seemingly ubiquitous violence in America's school culture.  Mathew Green directs a cast that includes: Guinevere Brown, Kimmy Schofield, Julia Clavadetscher, Rebecca Strom, Courtney Malcolm, Grace Taylor, Destiny Jording, and Benji Davis.  Performances will take place in the Parkland Second Stage Theatre September 28, 29, 30, and October 6, 7 at 7:30 p.m. October 1 and 8 at 3 p.m. This show is rated Teen for adult content and language.  Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for student, youth, senior, and veteran. Opening night is half-price of an adult ticket $10. To purchase tickets, visit tickets.parkland.edu. If you have questions, email theatre@parkland.edu. Parkland Theatre wants all of our guests to have an enjoyable experience. Both theatre are wheelchair accessible, and have accommodations for patrons with limited mobility and visual or hearing impairments.
