THIS WAY COMES
By the pricking of our thumbs, something wicked this way comes! Based on the famous Shakespeare play, ReThink Theatrical, in collaboration with Idyll Shift, has reformatted the story of Macbeth, which follows the journey of the nefarious Thane of Scotland who kills the king and steals the throne. This abridged story of heartbreak and betrayal will be told through the power of virtual storytelling. This production is rated PG, and may be best for audiences above the age of 10.
NO TICKETS REQUIRED! RSVP BELOW FOR REMINDERS
