SC Theatre Department to Present ‘Mac Beth’ Nov. 12-14

The Southwestern College theatre department will present “Mac Beth” on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m., in the Helen Graham Little Theatre located on the lower level of the Christy Administration Building. Viewer discretion is advised due to language and violent content.

“Mac Beth” is adapted by Erica Schmidt from “Macbeth” by William Shakespeare. According to director Joshua Robinson, seven teenage girls convene in an abandoned lot to perform a play. They drop their backpacks, transform their uniforms, and dive into a DIY retelling of “Macbeth.” As the girls conjure kings, warriors, and witches, Shakespeare’s bloody tale seeps into their reality. “Mac Beth” recontextualizes a classic text to expose the ferocity of adolescence and the intoxicating power of collective fantasy.

The seven teenage girls are played by seniors Jamieson Campo, Maya Damron, Emily Robinson Elizabeth Santana, and Markie Swanson, along with junior Katie Miller and freshman Jordan Burford.

“Putting this piece together has been a challenging, rewarding experience,” Robinson says.   “Given the nature of the play, the cast and crew have been brought into the decision-making process, giving them ownership over the circumstances in which the play is presented. The result is a fascinating, at times funny, and ultimately terrifying theatrical experience.”

Admission charge is $12 for adults, $6 for students, $10 for seniors (65+), and SC students and employees are free. For tickets or other information, call (620) 229-6272, or email
