Countdown to Opening. . .

Only three more days till the curtain goes up on The Actors Shakespeare Company at New Jersey City University's production of William Shakespeare's Macbeth on March 16th!  We hope you're getting so excited you're telling all your friends to come see the show with you.  It runs through the first of April, and the schedule of performances is as follows:

March 16 – April 1, 2012

7:30 p.m. Friday

3:00 p.m. Saturday

3:00 p.m. Sunday

Remember, as you prepare for your journey to the theater to see the show,  memorize Hamlet's invocation, so that you can recite it before the lights go down, and the first scene begins.
"Angels and ministers of grace, defend us!" to protect the production from The Curse!

Below some names of people to watch for when you attend the performance.

Macbeth is directed by Play Master Colette Rice.  Fight choreography is by Mark McCarthy. Production Stage Manager is Jennifer America.
