Spooky Shakespeare on Halloween Night

A Staged Reading of Macbeth is an opportunity to hear one of Shakespeare’s shortest and most popular plays brought to life in an informal and accessible atmosphere.

Yes, there are witches!

The evening is presented by the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival as a benefit for the Festival.

The reading is directed by Lori Ann DeLappe-Grondin. In honor of Halloween, audience members are invited to attend in costume!

Tickets for the Oct. 31 performance are $10 for general admission and $5 for students.
