Macbeth – The Pantomime


For something completely different, Castle Players will be staging the absolutely bonkers Macbeth – The Pantomime at Lytchett Matravers Village Hall on 24th, 25th and 31st of January and 1st February 2020, including 2 matinees.

Linsey O’Neill, who wrote and directed the fabulous Peter Pan and also the brilliant Cinderella, has come up with an even crazier, funnier script this time. Macbeth – The Pantomime; The Bard meets X-Factor. The concept is inspired; completely insane, but inspired. They say there’s a fine line between genius and insanity.

Duncan Blue is the King of Karaoke. But when Dave Macbeth bumps into some mysterious creatures who foretell his future, he and his wife Laydee will stop at nothing to win the Crown. Can young Marty Macduff and his mother stop them? Who will win Lytchett’s Got The Strictly Voice Pop Star on Love Island Factor? Why is Spot the Dog there?

Will Will be spinning in his grave?

The stage is set for a full line-up of baddies, witches and ghosts, dames, lovers and hapless idiots. The story is full of laughs, groans and plenty of audience participation. 

Tickets are just £10 (£5 for under 12’s) and are available on our website www.castleplayers.com or by calling 01202 912351.
