Creative Greensboro Presents Virtual Theatre Experience for Teens Beginning April 15
GREENSBORO, NC (April 8, 2020) – Creative Greensboro presents Macbeth, A Virtual Reader’s Theatre Experience, a free program open to all teens ages 13-17. Rehearsals will take place 4-5:30 pm Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays beginning April 15 and culminating in a staged reading on May 27 in reader’s theater style. To register, email Rosina Whitfield at Rosina.firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:Rosina.email@example.com>.
Reader’s theater is a theatrical presentation style where actors perform seated using only their voice – no costume, props, or scenery. All activities and the sharing will be done through the video conferencing system Zoom.
“Macbeth,” or “The Scottish Play” as referred to in the theatre due to a longstanding superstition that saying the title in a theatre is bad luck, is a tale of ambition and quest for power. Macbeth receives a prophecy from three witches that he will become king. He and his power hungry wife, Lady Macbeth, stop at nothing to make the prophecy come true, through various plots of intrigue and murder. The supernatural plays a part and there are fantastic male and female roles.
