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.
Macbeth On Tour is a fully-staged, 60-minute professional touring production that preserves all original Early Modern English text. Post-show discussion with the audience is included, facilitated by the actor-educators on the topics and themes of the production. Workshops offer an opportunity for up to 90 students to interact directly with the professional actor-educators. Workshop topics include acting, Shakespeare text, movement & stage combat, and technical theatre. The group also offers school/community evening performances for select groups or the community at large.
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.
