Macbeth August 11-14, 18-19, 25-26, Sep 1-2, 8-9
Performed by the Nashville Shakespeare Festival Apprentice Company, Macbeth is something wicked and wild. Set here and now, Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy takes on new levels of horror as Macbeth and the audience are caught in the spell of the three weird sisters and the witchy Queen Hecate. Parental guidance is recommended for this show, as murder and madness are the prevalent themes.
The Comedy of Errors August 20-21, 27-28, Sep 3-5, 10-11, 15-18
Shakespeare’s shortest and zaniest play gets a uniquely Nashville spin with original music by David Olney, Lari White, Stan Lawrence and Jack Kingsley. Set in an Ephesus that looks a lot like Nashville in the late 1960s, this family-friendly comedy will get your toes tapping and your belly laughing. Two sets of identical twins, a troupe of madcap characters and a kicking country band will make this one of the most memorable evenings you’ll have this summer.
