Synopsis

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. Macbeth to Witches: "How now, you secret, black and midnight hags." Storyteller to audience: "He sure knows how to talk to girls." The storytellers' caution at play's end: "Watch out what you ask for...and be careful who you hang out with."
