2024 National Tour
MACBETH – GENERAL AUDIENCE
Bookings have now closed for the 2024 National Tour – some information about our upcoming show:
When shall we three actors meet again?
On the Hauraki or Canterbury Plains?
When the script is full of puns.
When the rehearsals are all done.
That’ll be when we begin the fun…
Where the place?
Upon the Stage
At your school we’ll lift the words from the page….
Witches, Kings, Daggers and Murderers, all coming together to create mayhem and chaos. Macbeth doesn’t seem like a comedy, but in the UCS’s usual way we will be taking this tragic, sad and violent piece of classic Bard, and making it digestable for us all.
Just make sure you don’t say that name on stage (apparently it is ok in print)!
The Scottish Play is our 2024 offering with all the original bloodshed of this piece plus the USC’s own interpretation in 50 easy minutes. No trigger warning here, only to warn about the laughs and fun your students (and you) will have in this fast paced rollick through Birnam Wood.
We invite you and your students to sit back or roll off your seats laughing at the 28th offering from the Ugly Shakespeare Company. So take the fear out of Shakespeare for your students. An excellent piece to use for NCEA exploring the aspects of various theatre elements as well as a fast paced comedic fifty minute version of the classic work! Perfect for an intro to Shakespeare for new audiences or to reinforce the message with a comedy about one of Shakespeare’s tragedies.
