Spark Theatre aims to produce new and existing work that entertains, provokes thought and ignites dialogue. Rooted in the unique composition and needs of our community, Spark Theatre is committed to enhancing the artistic fabric of our region, embracing works and artists that will expand our horizons. Last year over 600 people enjoyed Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None with us. Over 1,100 people attended Tomson Highway's Rez Sisters (plus our educational matinee sold out to another 600 students), and Even Ensler's The Vagina Monologues was held over for two additional performances due to popular demand, entertaining over 400 people in the Mann Art Gallery! With all of that helping build our reputation for live theatre, we are pleased to present our second season!
Macbeth by William Shakespeare Directed & Adapted by Roxanne Dicke Following the downfall of modern civilization, Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the post-apocalyptic throne for himself. Wracked with guilt and paranoia, Macbeth is forced to continue his murderous rampage to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death. This production has been set in a theoretical, post-apocalyptic future. In addition to a cast of over twenty local performers, we have also hired two professional actors and fight directors to add grit and gut to the battle scenes, which are sure to impress.
