Something wicked this way comes... as Entertainment + bring the Shakespeare 4 Kidz international tour of the thrilling musical version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth to Bahrain.
The story of a noble Scottish warrior who becomes king after hearing the prophecies of three witches, Macbeth becomes a musical thriller filled with gruesome ghosts and bloody battles - even a forest that moves! It is guaranteed to keep kidz of all ages on the very edge of their seats.
Starring as Macbeth is Noel Andrew Harron, a favourite with local audiences, who has appeared recently here as Caliban in S4K’s The Tempest and Pinocchio in Pinocchio. The Irish actor is best known for his comedy roles and even manages to bring some of his special brand of humour to the “Scottish Play”.
S4K’s version of Macbeth is aimed at young audiences and families and tells the story with many of Shakespeare's original words woven into easy-to-understand modern language.
The show has been described as “Eerily atmospheric, genuinely original, truly entertaining and stealthily educational”
