Mur­der, may­hem in the Grampians

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ozact will re­turn to Heather­lie Quarry at Easter to present one of Shake­speare’s most pop­u­lar plays in the bush­land sur­rounds of Grampians Na­tional Park.

Ac­tors will per­form Macbeth on April 14, 15 and 16.

Di­rec­tor Bruce Wid­dop said Macbeth was Shake­speare’s most pow­er­ful play, fea­tur­ing two of his strong­est and most in­trigu­ing char­ac­ters, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

“It tells of their jour­ney from lofty dreams of power to the deep­est pits of deso­la­tion and de­spair,” he said.

“Macbeth has all of the el­e­ments for which Shake­speare is revered – pow­er­ful images, grip­ping char­ac­ters, in­trigu­ing re­la­tion­ships and plenty of ac­tion – all brought to life with pow­er­ful per­for­mances and en­hanced by beau­ti­ful cos­tumes. This pro­duc­tion prom­ises an event to re­mem­ber.”

Wid­dop said Heather­lie Quarry’s ar­chi­tec­tural and nat­u­ral el­e­ments pro­vided a per­fect set­ting for Shake­speare’s great­est works.

“The great Aus­tralian love of the out­doors, the ca­sual at­mos­phere, the prox­im­ity to per­form­ers, the ex­cit­ing act­ing, and the star­tling syn­er­gies between place and play leave an in­deli­ble im­pres­sion on our au­di­ences,” he said.

“Our pro­duc­tions are pop­u­lar with Shake­speare lovers as well as new­com­ers.”

Heather­lie Quarry shows will be at 3pm on April 14, 15 and 16. Tick­ets cost $35 for adults, $30 con­ces­sion and $20 for chil­dren younger than six.
