Audition Information


By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam Hester

A play of “vaulting ambition” and “black and deep desires,” Macbeth unleashes the horror of murder and witches and prophecy in a powerful new production set in the heart of the 1930s Mafia. Equity Actor Josh Blann will play the title role and Miranda West, senior ACU Theatre major, plays his ambitious wife. Macbeth reveals itself to be Shakespeare's most powerful and darkest nightmare—a terrifying parable for our own time in which we, too, are urged to take more and more chances, whatever the consequences. Shakespeare has the answer: Macbeth is the consequence. We must beware!

William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead

By John Heimbuch
Directed by Gary Varner

Zombies!!! Prepare for hilarity as the ACU Theatre takes you to London, 1599. After the Globe's inaugural performance of Henry V, Shakespeare fends off an embittered Will Kemp, furious about Falstaff's removal, and Francis Bacon, who has arrived with an idea to pitch. When the company's costumer is bitten by a plague-ridden madman, and the Queen, played by ACU Theatre professor Kari Hatfield, and her men arrive seeking safety, life in the playhouse takes a turn for the worse. As affliction spreads through London, the Globe is quarantined and the survivors within must fight for their lives. William Shakespeare's Land Of The Dead, is a comedic homage to zombie films and a “carefully” researched drama about Shakespeare and his authorship.
