Gamut Classic Theatre
Third Floor, Strawberry Square, Harrisburg

“Something wicked this way comes…”  Gamut Theatre, the combined theatre of Harrisburg Shakespeare Company and Popcorn Hat Players Children’s Theatre, presents its highly acclaimed educational outreach production of Macbeth.  One of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, Macbeth follows the rise and fall of a Scottish lord-turned-King, whose ambition turns him into a brutal murderer consumed by the dark arts.  The play also explores the concept of fate vs. personal responsibility.

Macbeth 4

Recommended for ages 12 and up, the production is extremely accessible, employing Gamut’s unique educational outreach style of combining Shakespeare’s original text with modern “narrations” to bridge the most famous scenes from the play together into an easy-to-understand story. This dynamic show is performed by five highly –talented actors, runs 80 minutes, and features dramatic sword fights, which have become a hallmark of Gamut’s touring Shakespeare productions.  Each performance is followed by a talk-back discussion with the audience.  Workshops are also available for students to gain a deeper understanding of the play.

2013-2014 Season

21st Annual Free Shakespeare in the Park
Antony and Cleopatra

by William Shakespeare

May 30 – June 14

Passion, war, and betrayal erupt in this rich romantic tragedy. Although the sensual Cleopatra has conquered the heart of Rome’s greatest soldier, Marc Antony must choose between duty and desire. When Antony is recalled by Rome and duty, the trajectory of the play is set in motion: furious jealousy, betrayal, humiliation, reconciliation, and a love that sets the paradigm for all romantic love.
