For this project, we are ONLY SEEKING ADULT actors who can truly, believably, play the age range
Actors of Color especially encouraged to attend.
MACBETH (Female) Impetuous, passionate, susceptible to dreams of power and glory, she puts aside all morals in order to fulfill her ambitions.
LADY MACBETH (Female) Fiery, nimble and fiercely intelligent. She is a deeply ambitious woman who wants position and power. She falls victim to madness as she cannot handle reality and humanity.
BANQUO (Female) Macbeth’s constant and upstanding best friend. She is equally ambitious to Macbeth but does not succumb to the temptations that Macbeth does.
MACDUFF (Female) The ultimate protagonist, fierce and good hearted. Always genuine, and though she is physically imposing, she is easy to empathize with.
WITCH 1 (Female)
WITCH 2 (Female)
WITCH 3 (Female)
Superficial and self obsessed without any moral boundaries. They are intimidating and strong, and though they have a fascination of occult, there is nothing gothic about them.
