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 last December as 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”
A full list of Gulf tour dates is below.

|What they say about us:|
"It was a completely fresh experience to be in an audience of children most of whom had no idea what they were seeing beyond that it was about a man who kills the king to become king – in effect it was like going to see the play with the first audiences that went to see it when it was written, which made it a wholly different play. I reckon anyone who wants to get an inkling of how Shakespeare plays came across in their own time shouldn't be going to the Globe with an adult audience, they should be going to your performances."
