Costume notes
Shakespeare's Macbeth as a modern language play (with modern humour) for kids. A one act play in five acts. Simple sets and props. Options for songs and dances.
There should be three witches, but one of them is having problems with her satellite navigation system. Eventually they give a fateful prediction to Macbeth, who likes the idea of being the new king enough to dispatch the old one. Much murder and wringing of hands ensues. All this and a mad Scottish doctor. The bard will be spinning in his grave!
