A role in "Macbeth"

I am currently in rehearsals for "Macbeth," the newest production in the wonderful free Shakespeare in the Park program staged by Optimist Theatre.

The production opens Thursday at Alverno College and some of Milwaukee's finest actors are in the production that has been skillfully directed by Ron Scot Fry.

James Pickering, Marti Gobel and Tom Reed are all wonderful actors who star in "Macbeth" along with many of the best young actors in the city.

The performances are all outside on the campus and it promises to be an enchanting evening of theater, watching a couple where one embodies treachery and the other goes mad.

Information can be obtained by calling Optimist at (262) 498-5777 or go here. The play will run June 21-24 and June 28-July 1.

By the way, I play Old Siward, the "oldest and greatest warrior in all Christendom."
