NMC Players: The Tragedy of Macbeth

In Spring 2008, NMC Players took on William Shakespeare‘s famous “Scottish Play”.

For this small production, there were several initial cuts made to the play’s original script, and a slew of oddities plagued its production (actors encountered several other strange – and deadly – occurrences shortly following performances, too; undoubtedly results of its notorious curse). Nonetheless, the students NMC‘s amateur acting troupe pulled together a solid production, building a core of enthusiasts who eventually continued with the program and spearheaded other college productions including The Crucible, Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Once Upon a Mattress.

This performance of the play took place on April 12, 2008 on the upper stage in Scholar’s Hall at Northwestern Michigan College.
