Carousel Theatre's Macbeth on Granville Island

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

macbethEarlier this month I previewed a few upcoming events that all ages can enjoy for free throughout the city this summer. I’m excited to add to the list Carousel Theatre’s presentation of Macbeth, which will run on the Performance Works Outdoor Stage on Granville Island form July 31st until August 15th.

A haunting tragedy of vaulting ambition in the castles of Scotland –a murdered king, evil witches, and a Scottish lord’s bloody rise to power.

The show is entirely free of charge and to make it even more interesting, it is being presented by the Teen Shakespeare Program, starring 13-17 year olds from around the Lower Mainland. The Gothic retelling of Macbeth will be the culmination the teens’ intense 6-week program with the Carousel Theatre, which is now in its 19th year.

They will also be hosting a silent auction in order to raise funds to keep this inspirational and creative program going in the future.

Bring a blanket (and some warm clothes for the cool summer nights) to the Performance Works Outdoor Stage (Ron Basford Park) at 1218 Cartwright Street, on Granville Island to enjoy this free event until August 15th.
