South Dakota Shakespeare Festival to Present Macbeth in Vermillion
The production will feature professional actors and actresses hired from competitive national and regional markets, theater faculty and younger specialists drawn from USD’s theater program. Along with the full length-production, SDSF will feature live music and food and beverage vendors in the park beginning at 6 p.m. each night. In addition, various workshops and educational training sessions for all ages will be offered throughout the four days of the event.
In conjunction with the South Dakota Shakespeare Festival production of the play, USD's College of Arts & Sciences will also host three Shakespeare scholars for a roundtable discussion of "Macbeth." That event will take place in the afternoon at Prentis Park before Sunday’s final performance. The scholars, Kevin Quarmby, Brett Gamboa and Darlene Farabee, will discuss previous enactments of “Macbeth" and particular acts to watch for in Sunday evening’s performance. The roundtable discussion will give audience members a chance to engage in the production and ask questions regarding the play’s history and identity.
The South Dakota Shakespeare Festival mission is to increase the cultural, artistic and educational offerings of the state of South Dakota and the Great Plains region. In doing so, the festival provides professional Shakespeare performances and arts education events. The performances are under the leadership of artistic director Chaya Gordon-Bland, executive director Greg Huckabee, production manager Scott Mollman and education director Tim Pyles.
