This afternoon Macbeth opened to a house of students (and some members of the public) generously sponsored by G&S Landscape and Excavation Service.
The Starpheonix also published a great article and video about the production. Read the story and watch the video here!
Cam Fuller of the Saskatoon StarPheonix joined us for opening night! He had this to say:
“intriguing and engaging”
“it’s delightful because… the acting [is] so good”
“Hartshorn is nothing less than a revelation as Frieda… she was completely in the moment and delivered a magnetic, flawless performance.”
“Jenna Maren’s interesting set… [delivers] a bit of magic”
