July 31st - August 15th

The Alternative Arts Collective has adapted Hamlet, Tempest, Taming of The Shrew, King Lear and A Midsummer Night's Dream all into modern whimsical and terrifying productions. With edits to the text while still preserving the bard's poetry, TAAC has made these timeless stories more immediate for new and veteran audiences. This summer TAAC is thrilled to be hosted by The Chautauqua Playhouse as we re-imagine the tragedy of Macbeth. In this exciting production, casting has been gender and age blind to showcase a story performed by actors who best portray the characters. Prepare yourself for an immediate, honest and visceral production of the epic play: Macbeth.


*Please note that this production will include simulated gore and sexuality.
