Macbeth - NSW

The Australian Shakespeare Company

Macbeth

"Thanks for your great work last week it exceeded expectations! There has been a transformation in the way in which the class is responding to the play. No longer are they simply reading words from the page, they are far more engaged in the play itself!"
BOB HILLMAN, TRINITY GRAMMAR SCHOOL

The Australian Shakespeare Company’s theatre education program is now available in NSW! Offering Australia’s most extensive and dynamic line-up of in-school workshops and industry run courses.
Our Focus: CONNECT. COMPREHEND. APPRECIATE. EXPRESS.

The Australian Shakespeare Company's Incursion Program provides an explosive exploration of the works of Shakespeare. Catering to students of English and Drama, two company actors travel through the story of the play performing pivotal scenes along the way with passionate, in depth discussions about the world of the play, historical context, characters, themes, contemporary relevance and language styles.

Delivered with high production standards to create a memorable theatrical experience:
two seasoned, professional actors cast for the roles, specifically designed set pieces, props, costumes, music, innovative staging, traditional fencing foils or contemporary stage combat weapons. As Australia’s largest independent theatre company we believe in the magic of theatre, and we are passionate about bringing that magic to young minds and hearts.

A very interactive session seeing the students engaged throughout - both off and on the stage!

Macbeth
This session focuses on the supernatural vs psychological, the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, fate and destiny, the nature of ambition, Shakespeare as a writer of historical fiction and the dark imagery of the play.
