On November 29, 2017, students of Elite Academic School went to a field trip – going and watching a live theatre play performed by the Classical Theatre Project at downtown Toronto. It is the famous Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth!
Classical Theatre Project is a professional theatre company based in Toronto, Ontario that creates innovative productions of classic plays for a new generation of theatre fans. The company was founded in 2001 and focuses on producing the works of William Shakespeare. Since its creation, the CTP has played to more than 500,000 audience members across Canada and the U.S. In addition to creating and touring first class productions of Shakespeare and various classic plays for young audiences, CTP produces a number of live theatre events for general audiences across Toronto, including ShakesBeer and The Complete Works of Shakespeare.
Macbeth: set against the backdrop of violent tribal conflicts, this re-imagined, gritty production of Macbeth features epic sword fights and modern stage technology. As hero becomes tyrant, Shakespeare's masterful commentary on the corrupting nature of power poses the timeless and dangerous question: is he who desires ultimate power capable of being a just leader? "Blood will have blood…” and Shakespeare’s shortest and bloodiest tragedy certainly delivers.
