Camp Encore presents Macbeth at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 15-16

Camp Encore presents Macbeth at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 15-16

Macbeth
Something wicked this way comes…

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and Directed by Kate Magill Robinson

Kate Magill Robinson, director of Camp Encore’s terrific productions of As You Like It in 2013 and Lotsa Lazzi! in 2014, returns this summer to lead teen actors through Shakespeare’s lyrical tale of murder and madness.

An ensemble-based script, created just for this camp, will use Shakespeare’s original language to tell the story of the noble warrior Macbeth and his ambitious wife, who tread a dark path and trade their souls to gain the crown of Scotland. Our production, performed in the Greenbelt Arts Center on July 15 and 16, will also use movement, music and stage combat to tell this story of magic, power and destiny.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: Due to subject matter and staged violence, this production may not be suitable for children under 10.

PERFORMANCES: Wednesday, July 15 at 1:00pm and Thursday, July 16 at 4:00pm

Performance Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Free admission, but seating may be limited. To reserve seats, email katemagill3@gmail.com with your name, date requested and number of tickets. Seating may be available at the door.

Lotsa Lazzi at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 10-11

Camp Encore presents Lotsa Lazzi at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 10-11

CAMP ENCORE Ages 13-17

Lotsa Lazzi!

Join director Kate Magill Robinson and the Camp Encore troupe leaders on a hilarious exploration of the raucous roots of western comedy. Commedia dell’ arte originated in the Italian Renaissance with stock comic characters and recognizable comic bits (called lazzi). It permeated European theatre for several hundred years and has inspired theatre artists from Shakespeare to Saturday Night Live. In this ensemble-based camp, students will take on stock characters and play with Lotsa Lazzi, as we explore what makes us laugh and learn to build a performance driven by physicality, music, dance, rollicking scenarios and slapstick comedy. So bring your funny, and let’s play.

At the end of the camp session, campers will present a live theater performance at the Greenbelt Arts Center. Students unable to attend the entire session may enroll, but their participation in the shows may be limited. If your camper has significant schedule conflicts with the camp schedule, please consult Kate at katemagill3@ gmail.com before enrolling. Attendance in the final week and at both shows is mandatory to enroll.
