Fort Pierce-April 1, 2022: The Indian River State College (IRSC) Performing and Visual Arts Department invites the community to see two Summer Series performances sure to captivate audiences: a memorable performance of music in “Contemporary Cabaret” in the McAlpin Theatre on June 9, 10, and 11 at 7 p.m., and June 11 at 2 p.m. and the innovative and immersive presentation of Shakespeare’s, “Macbeth,” in the Kight Center for Emerging Technology on June 24 and June 25 at 2 p.m., and June 24 and June 25 at 7 p.m.

Following the success of last year’s A “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the IRSC Performing and Visual Arts Department announces its second annual “Summer ShakesPierce” production of “Macbeth.” This year’s immersive production will take place in the Kight Center for Emerging Technologies (V-Building) of the Massey Campus in Fort Pierce from June 24–25.

One of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, Macbeth depicts the explosive rise and fall of a Scottish Lord whose political ambition is constantly fanned by his murderous wife. Together, they usurp the throne of the Kingdom, only to learn that the witches’ prophecy that foretold their triumph also spelled out their doom.

In a unique approach, the IRSC production will be updated to the Film Noir setting of the 1940s and immerse the audience in the exciting action of the play—including interactive video footage using the Kight Center’s innovative technology. This year’s production again brings both high school and college students together to create an engaging Shakespeare experience.

“A Contemporary Cabaret” will be performed from June 9th to 11th. It features bright and colorful expressions of music.
