Barrington Community Theatre will present a peformance of Shakespeare's Macbeth.
The loyal and brave Macbeth is confused when three strange beings confront him after a battle and predict that he shall grow in power to the point of becoming King. Macbeth begins to lose himself (and then everything else) as he gives in to ambition and paranoia and the bodies begin to pile up. Ultimately he learns (too late) that prophecies can be misleading.
This show is dark and not advised for young children.
Free and open to all
Barrington Community Theatre (B.C.T.) is the school-year sister-program of Barrington Enrichment Summer Theatre (B.E.S.T.) camp, established in 2002. In these programs, children as young as 8 years old through seniors in high school, come together to learn about theater and rehearse short plays to perform at the end of each session.
B.C.T./B.E.S.T. prides itself on being a welcoming, inclusive, and nurturing environment - the participants are welcoming and supportive of each other as they learn and grow - at different points along their paths - together. We run our program on the idea that there is something to learn in each part of theatre - and that there is a lot to gain not only from being a lead, but also from playing a supporting role.
B.E.S.T. runs for 6 weeks every summer. During this summer camp, in addition to rehearsing shows to perform at the end of 3 weeks, campers participate in workshops on a variety of subjects and play a myriad of theatre games.
