Greenville, S.C. (April 19, 2013) – Bob Jones University (BJU) will present one of William Shakespeare’s best known tragedies, “Macbeth,” in Rodeheaver Auditorium at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1, and at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 2. Directed by Ron Pyle, the production features Philip Eoute as Macbeth and Shawn MacDonald as Lady Macbeth.
“Macbeth” is the last of Shakespeare’s four great tragedies and one of his shortest, most concentrated plays. A drama of vaulting ambition and overpowering conscience, it moves swiftly and inexorably from the mysterious opening appearance of the three witches on a foggy heath to Macbeth’s final desperate encounter with his nemesis, Macduff, on the battlefield.
Last performed at BJU in 2003, “Macbeth” will be performed for the eleventh time, dating back to its first performance in 1933.
The cast also features David Schwingle as Macduff, Christian Shockley as Malcolm, David Eoute, Jr. as Banquo, Paul Radford as Duncan, and Meagan Jones, Kaitlyn Chisholm and Katrina Case as the three witches.
Ticket prices are $30 for adults who wish to sit in the front sections and $25 for rear sections, and full time student tickets are $12 for all sections. The play is open to the public and tickets are available at bju.edu/tickets or by calling (864) 770-1372.
