This season Nebraska Shakespeare will be celebrating its 15th annual touring season with William Shakespeare's Macbeth. The cast includes eight professional actor-educators and skilled workshop facilitators. The touring productions are geared towards middle and high school students and the productions are especially relatable and accessible to that audience. Testimonials from teachers, communities and students can be found on the production's website.
Although we are unable to offer a live performance in 2020, we will offer a Nebraska Shakespeare professional, abridged video production of Macbeth specifically staged for students and educators. The 80-minute production will be followed by a live Zoom post-performance discussion with skilled actor/educators creating a customized experience for students and their teachers.
Available to teachers, a Touring Performance Study Guide is filled with activities and suggested readings to help build preliminary and future strategies for the classroom.
Performance Dates: September 21 - November 6, 2020
Maximum negotiable fees: Fees range from $500 to $2,000 (workshops and public performance). Reduced rates available.
