The Utah Shakespeare Festival’s “Shakespeare-in-the-Schools” touring company will be performing the Scottish tragedy Macbeth Wednesday and Thursday at the Grand Theatre located at South City Campus. The best part is that the play is free to all SLCC students on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Also known as “The Scottish Play,” Macbeth is a world famous play about betrayal, guilt and murder, all centered on the King of Scotland. The play itself is one of Shakespeare’s shortest works, and this week’s performance has a run time of about 80 minutes. The play is rich with history and its characters are some of the most culturally significant Shakespeare ever wrote.
Performing this piece are actors from the Utah Shakespearean Festival, who have been delighting audiences for years. The Tony Award winning festival and its award-winning actors have been performing at SLCC’s Grand Theatre every year in March since 1996. Couple this with the beauty of the Grand Theatre itself and the entire production will be an incredible treat for all who attend.
The play will be performed at 11:00 a.m. on both Wednesday, March 30 and Thursday, March 31. No tickets are required and seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis. There will be more seats available on Wednesday than on Thursday and it’s best to show up 15 minutes early. The Grand Theatre is located at 1575 South State Street.
