    This dramatic adaptation, sprinkled with comedic commentary, is a winner for elementary, middle, and early high school. Shakespeare's Scottish tragedy is told within a lively and humorous story-theatre frame. Macbeth and his Lady covet the crown while witches, ghosts, kings and soldiers sweep across the landscape, carving out the battle between good and evil. Shakespeare characters speak the Bard's words, while storytellers fill in plot and comment wryly on the escalating action. Learn More

    Perhaps there are dimensions in time, mysterious and unexplored, where the past moves into the present and back again, revolving like the spinning of a carousel. This is the theme of this drama, which centers on the polar bear of a carousel where a woman left her little boy in the 1890s. He disappeared and she has spent her entire life looking for him.
