About The Show

The Steward School theatre department is proud to present this year's winter play, "Macbeth the Musical!" This "quarantined comedy" is a tongue-in-cheek adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Tragedy of Macbeth," rewritten for a modern audience by members of Steward's International Thespians Society and directed by Lower School theatre and Upper School acting teacher Craig Smith.
 
Unlike other plays in the past, the actors in this production rehearsed, and later filmed, their performances separately in their own homes without the benefit of in-person cues from their castmates. The cast and crew swapped elaborate set designs for customized Zoom backgrounds, brought a contemporary spin to the dialogue, and added a variety of musical features, including Billie Eilish's "Bury a Friend," David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World," and Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World."

Tune in here to watch a unique twist on this classic tale portraying the humors and horrors of unchecked ambition!
