Macbeth

A brave Scottish general receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will be the King of Scottland.

Wracked with guilt and paranoia, he commits more and more murders to maintain his newly-gained royal status, leading him closer and closer to a bloody end himself.

The Insect Play

By Karel and Joseph Capek

A trampĀ falls asleep in the woods and dreams of a range of insects that stand in for various human characteristics: the flighty, vain butterfly, the self-serving dung beetle, and the ants, whose increasingly mechanized behavior leads to a militaristic society. The insects allowed the writers to comment allegorically on life in post-World War I Czechoslovakia and hopefully, on society today.

Pushing Up the Sky

By Joseph Bruchac

This series of seven plays examines the heroes and tricksters, comedy and drama, and love for the land that Native American literature has given us.

This will be a touring production, but we will announce the date for a public performance in the Spring!

Afterparty

Inspired by Clue and Groundhog’s Day, the 2019 magnet seniors have written their own time-traveling murder mystery! When the host of a graduation party turns up dead, her best friend is sucked into a time loop that will only end when she finds the murderer. Was it the weird goth girl, the hypochondriac, or the … wait, is that even a girl? Check out all the hilarity with our soon-to-be grads.
