Celebrate Spring with Shakespeare’s Macbeth

The Orchard Ridge Theatre Program presents William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the story of a brave Scottish warrior who allows dark ambition to take over. macbeth

The theater program has gone with some unconventional casting and set it in contemporary Scotland. Macbeth, who is played by a female lead, murders King Duncan and usurps the throne for herself.

Guilt and paranoia consume Macbeth and the tyrannical ruler is forced to commit more and more murders to protect herself and her crown. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of hubris, madness and death.  

It’s the theater department’s first Shakespeare production, which features students and faculty. 

Show dates are March 20, 21, 22 and 27, 28, 29. All performances are at 8 p.m. at the Smith Theatre in OCC’s Orchard Ridge Campus, 27055 Orchard Lake Road, Farmington Hills. 

Purchase tickets here. For more information, contact Ken Faulk.

General admission is $10; students and seniors (age 60-plus) pay $5. Tickets may be purchased at the Orchard Ridge Raiders Store or at the Smith Theatre Box Office on the day of the performance. Tickets may also be reserved in advance.
