MELBOURNE, FLA.—When people hear “Macbeth,” Shakespeare usually comes to mind. The next Florida Tech College Players production, however, is nowhere near 17th-century.
Performances will be on March 30 and 31, and April 5, 6 and 7 at 8 p.m. in the Gleason Performing Arts Center, on campus.
The comedy, by John Patrick, exposes the antics of a misguided community theatre trying desperately to put on the Shakespearean classic, Macbeth. The play will take the audience through nepotistic casting, chaotic rehearsals and the fateful opening night. The production is fraught with its hilarious complications and misunderstandings.
On the production staff are: director, Jerome Salgado; assistant director, Jessica Moore; producer, T.J. Kupchick; and technical director, John Ferreira.
Tickets, available at the door, cost $8 for general admission; $5 for ages 55 and older, and those with a military or student IDs; and $3 for Florida Tech students, faculty, and staff with IDs. For more information, contact Stephanie Crow or College Players at (321) 674-8767, or visit http://cp.fit.edu.
