The Elise Event Montana Shakespeare in the Schools Presents "Macbeth"

Saturday, November 3, 2012, from 6:30pm to 10:00pm
Black Box Theatre

A performance of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" will be the highlight of a benefit to support the Montana Shakespeare in the Schools program.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, at Montana State University's Black Box Theater.


The annual Montana Shakespeare in the Schools fundraiser is called The Elise Event as a tribute to patron Elise Donohue. The evening begins with beverages followed by a performance of the Shakespeare in the Schools' production of Shakespeare's classic, bloody tragedy"Macbeth."  Following the performance, the audience will meet Montana Shakespeare in the Parks' artistic director Joel Jahnke, as well as the Shakespeare in the Schools actors and designers for a behind-the-scenes discussion and catered reception with wine and appetizers.

"Macbeth"is the Bard's most concise and brutal tragedy.  Its title character is a charismatic warrior who, at the urging of his ambition, his beloved wife and some prophesying witches, murders his way to kingship and 'dusty death'. "Macbeth"features some of the most memorable and oft-quoted lines from Shakespeare, including ""Out, damned spot!," "Double, double, toil and trouble," Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow..."  "By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes . . ," and "Fair is foul and foul is fair."
