This production, part of the Fall Festival of Shakespeare, runs this weekend at Greylock School, and then next week at Shakepeare & Company at 70 Kemble Street, Lenox.

The Fall Festival of Shakespeare is supported, in part, by many individual and institutional supporters.

From the website of Shakespeare & Company:

Macbeth-PosterThe annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare is nine-week residency program at high schools throughout western Massachusetts and parts of neighboring New York State. Shakespeare & Company directors at each school lead nearly 500 students through a language-based exploration of a Shakespeare play, culminating in a full-scale production performed on Shakespeare & Company’s Tina Packer Playhouse for the public. The Fall Festival of Shakespeare is a crown jewel of our performance season. When these high-energy teenagers set loose the power of Shakespeare’s language in front of packed houses, the thrill is contagious.
