Vermont Theatre Company announces its 30th annual Shakespeare in the Park presentation with Macbeth, performed June 27th through 30th at the Rotary Stage in Brattleboro’s Living Memorial Park. Admission is $5.00, and performances begin at 6:00pm. Reservations are not necessary. The well-known tale of Shakespeare's irredeemable anti-hero, Macbeth is lent a contemporary setting in order to engage audiences in drawing connections to a tumultuous geopolitical climate created by present-day leadership crises. Macbeth is a cunning general and fearsome warrior in service to Scotland's king, earning respect and fortune for his battlefield exploits. After a portentous encounter with supernatural forces, Macbeth returns home to his ambitious wife. Lady Macbeth quickly persuades her husband that his talent for violence can yield greater gains – especially if he can stomach a few cold-blooded murders. VTC’s production is modern, action-packed, and accessible to all audiences. Macbeth is approximated to have been written in 1603, whereafter it was presented in part to extol the Scottish ancestors of England’s newly-crowned King James I. Produced, analyzed, reimagined, and loved for over four centuries, Macbeth is one of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays. Acclaimed productions have included Trevor Nunn’s 1979 effort, which stars Ian McKellan and Judi Dench, as well as the Justin Kurzel-directed 2015 film starring Michael Fassbender. Macbeth is produced by Michael Jerald, directed by Cameron Cobane, and managed by Harral Hamilton. It stars Jesse Cross-Nickerson, Michelle Page, Adrienne Major, Geof Dolman, Christian Drake, Jonathan Kinnersley, Jessica Callahan Gelter, Ruben Garza, Krista Coughlin-Galbraith, Leo Sanzone, Shannon Ward, Victoria Maillo de Aguilera, Evelyn Gelter, Eli Coughlin-Galbraith, Emily Webb, Gavin Holloway, Nat Roy, Alex Luckham, Harral Hamilton, Louise Zak, and Brandon Peterson.
