Sherman Youth Theatre Get Sand in their Shoes this Summer     

Venue Two at The Sherman Theatre has been transformed into a giant desert this Summer with six tonnes of sand covering the floor of the auditorium. It’s all in aid of The Sherman’s Summer Youth Theatre’s brand new production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which runs from Thursday 15 to Saturday 17 September.
This original production of Macbeth presents the classic as a story imagined by a child playing in sand. The setting of the desert has been chosen as a timeless location for a timeless story. The Sherman Summer Youth Theatre have left no stone (or grain of sand!) unturned to produce an exciting version of the play. For the past eight weeks, the 18 strong cast of 13 – 25 year olds have been very busy exploring the complex themes of Macbeth in order to bring Shakespeare’s language to life.
The production will use physical theatre, storytelling and stunning effects, as well as all the sand of course! Education, Youth and Participation Manager Dinos Aristidou says “Sherman Summer Youth Theatre productions are well-known for being visual and Macbeth is no exception – the 6 tonnes of sand should make for quite a spectacle! Rehearsals are going well and we have discovered some fascinating things about the play – it will certainly be Macbeth like you’ve never seen it before!”
Macbeth is at The Sherman Theatre from Thursday 15 to Saturday 17 September at 7.30pm with Matinee performances at 2.00pm (except Saturday). Tickets are available by calling the Box Office on 029 2064 6900.
