The Civic Youth Theatre Summer Theatre Institute presents "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare.

Thought to have been first performed in 1606, "The Tragedy of Macbeth" dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake.

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. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.

Performances are in the Theatre Garden on the grounds of the Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art, located at 920 State Street. Plenty of street parking is available. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket.

From 6:00-6:45 pm on both evenings, enjoy the live music of Scott Greeson on the front lawn of the Museum prior to the performance. All are welcome to bring a picnic basket (no alcohol permitted), blanket or lawn chair and relax. Artists are invited to set up an easel to sketch or paint the picnic on the grass.

From Scott’s web page,
“Scott’s songs are best described as poetic snapshots of folks living in America’s heartland, his lyrics painting the picture of real, hard-working people whom Scott encounters in everyday life. These people and their stories have been a constant source of inspiration for Scott as a person and a songwriter. Radio stations call Scott’s music “Americana,” a format blending folk, traditional, bluegrass, alternative country and acoustic blues.”
