This year’s Echuca College school production is titled macbeth.com. The play is a version of Shakespeare’s famous MacBeth, but we have added some stunning use of film and computer graphics, as well as dance and live and recorded music and singing – there are 22 songs in the show.
Students have now been rehearsing diligently at lunchtimes and after school for 13 weeks. The actors are doing a wonderful job coming to grips with Shakespeare’s language, as well as the modern sections of the play. The musicians and singers are sounding excellent and the dancers have almost completed their choreography and rehearsals.
There will even be a hip hop dance in this production. Our media crew is busily filming and creating computer effects as well. macbeth.com will play at the Paramount Theatre between the 27th and 29th of August. Mark that date in your calendars now! You won’t have seen a show like this in Echuca before and it gives us a chance to showcase the enormous performing arts talents of students at Echuca College.
We need parents of students in the production to support their child’s commitment in every way possible – maybe hearing lines, helping with costumes, fundraising – everything will help. Let us know if you’d like to become involved.
