Little Lake Theatre Company presents William Shakespeare’s epic tragedy “Macbeth” for the first time in the company’s storied 70-year history this month.

This tragic tale of ambition is the capstone of the company’s 70th Anniversary season, and will use the entire Little Lake campus to bring the story to life. Audience members will follow the cast through the opening scenes of the play outdoors, with settings designed to evoke the atmosphere of the Scottish countryside. One of the scenes will take the audience into the company’s historic rehearsal barn, which was the original theater space in 1949. We are proud to bring audiences back literally to where it all began seven decades ago as we celebrate this milestone year. The production features modernized Scottish costumes and several stage combat scenes (including broadsword duels), a spectacle not seen on the Little Lake stage in over 15 years.

Directed by Little Lake Artistic Director Jena Oberg, performances are at 8 p.m. Sept. 27-29 and Oct. 4-6. Tickets are $21-$22.50 for adults and $14 for ages 15 and under. A “Macbeth” Pre-Show guide can be viewed at www.littlelake.org/macbethguide.
