The New Britain Youth Theater Teen Company will perform William Shakespeare’s Macbeth on November 16, 17 and 18 at Trinity-on-Main Performance Center in downtown New Britain.
Often considered the darkest of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Macbeth is a tale about a couple’s thirst for power and its bloody consequences. Ghosts, witches, and many of the Bard’s most famous lines make Macbeth one of the most intense and often performed of Shakespeare’s works—despite its superstitious reputation as a cursed play.
As directed by NBYT Artistic Director David B. Sousa, the production is set in a modern yet third-world Scotland. Macbeth is the second full production of the NBYT Teen Company, a program in which teens may become involved in choosing, producing and promoting their own theater.
Macbeth will be performed at Trinity-on-Main Performance Center, located at 69 Main Street in New Britain. Performances are Friday, November 16, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, November 17, at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, November 18, at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for students, and seniors. Special group rates are available for parties of ten or more. Tickets may be reserved by calling New Britain Youth Theater at 860-515-8115 or may be purchased online through a link at www.nbyt.org.
