Skidmore Theater Presents Macbeth

Skidmore Theater Presents Macbeth

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Skidmore College Department of Theater will be performing “Macbeth” by William Shakespeare for its 2015 Mainstage show. This production is directed by published writer, feminist media critic and Skidmore Theater artist-in-residence Holly L. Derr.

The immoral classic is given new life in this bold, gender-bending production of “Macbeth.” In a world of witches, war and madness, Macbeth and his cunning wife will stop at nothing to hold the throne of Scotland. The price of power, however, is greater than they predicted- an army led by the strongest warrior in the land is determined to restore the King’s daughter to her throne.

“Macbeth is generally thought of as being about ambition, but it’s really about so much more than that,” said Derr. “In our production, we complicate questions about the nature of gender, pointing out Shakespeare’s underlying theme and reflecting the way gender functions in our world. We’re also using some pretty cool SFX to highlight Shakespeare’s use of the supernatural as a storytelling device and as a way of exploring questions about mortality, nature and time.”

The production will run November 20, 21 and 22 and December 3, 4, 5 and 6. All shows are at 8 p.m., except Sundays (November 22 and December 6), when the show begins at 2 p.m.


Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students and seniors.
