Macbeth – Student Matinee

October 17 @ 9:30 am - October 18 @ 12:30 pm

William Shakespeare’s epic tragedy “Macbeth” comes to Ethington Theater to thrill audiences with a story of royal and bloody dissension that ensues from a ruthless fight for power. Driven by blind political ambition, warrior and antagonist Macbeth rises and falls in a cold-blooded quest toward kingship. This theatrical Shakespearean theatrical drama captures how deceit and murder, without any moral restraint, ends with deadly consequences.

Unbridled Ambition. Corrupted Power. Tragic Downfall.

Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, finds himself in an unmerciful quest for the Scottish throne after receiving a prophecy from three witches that he’s destined to wear the crown. His steadfast desire to become king, along with the persuasion of his manipulative wife, Lady Macbeth, drive him to murder King Duncan. Now a tyrannical ruler, Macbeth becomes wrought with paranoia and guilt over his evil deeds. Securing his kindship consumes him and he desperately uses any means possible to eliminate potential threats to his throne. Fear and guilt also weigh on Lady Macbeth’s conscience as she loses her mind. Among the bloodshed and treachery, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth cannot escape their fatal fates.

Ethington Theatre invites you to this Shakespearean event that will have you on the edge of your seat. Registration will be available shortly!

Peter and the Starcatcher – Student Matinee

November 19 - November 20

Ethington Theatre proudly presents “Peter and the Starcatcher”—a prequel to the classic story “Peter Pan,” written by J.M. Barrie. “Peter and the Starcatcher” is based on Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling children’s book, which was adapted into a fantastical theatrical production. Follow the wild adventures on high seas and the mysterious island of Mollusk that turn an orphaned boy into the legendary Peter Pan. This play is on-stage spectacle not to be missed!

“Peter and the Starcatcher” welcomes you aboard the Neverland ship for a magical voyage full of evil pirates and greedy thieves overtaken by the power of love and friendship. The voyage begins when Peter and his friends take off from Victorian England to a faraway island. At sea, the group encounters Molly, the daughter of Starcatcher Lord Astor, who’s on a quest to save the world from evil. Together, they battle villains and storms at sea forming an unbreakable bond, while protecting a trunk filled with otherworldly treasures known as “starstuff.” Between unexpected misfortunes and heroic deeds, this thrilling journey tells the story of how Peter Pan and the Lost Boys all came to be, making the island named Neverland, their home.

Monday, Nov. 19 – Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018 | 9:30 am
