Teaching Macbeth to Teens
Teaching Macbeth to Teens

AIR DATE: February 9, 2011

Double, double, toil and trouble... a murderous Scotsman is coming to the CSN campus! The Utah Shakespearean Festival brings "Macbeth" to the CSN stage. It's part of the traveling program to teach students about Shakespeare. Do today's teens connect with the Bard? And how do you translate Elizabethan lingo for the Nevada high school student? Actors and a 17 year old talk about bringing the ancient script to life.

Noelle Pineda, senior, Bonanza High School
Todd Zimbelman, actor ("Macduff"), Utah Shakespearean Festival
Aaron Gaines, actor ("Macbeth"), Utah Shakespearean Festival
Jennifer Whipple, actor ("Witch" and "Lady Macduff"), Utah Shakespearean Festival

I had the pleasure to see the play yesterday. I want to congratulate the crew for the wonderful work they do. Even though the language is so difficult to follow the dynamics of the play make it very enjoyable.

Thank you for your hard work!
