PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a small group reader's theater. It is for four students. This script is a twisted version of Mac and Beth. If you know how the actual Macbeth goes then you know the plot of this script. It isn't as bloody, there aren't any swear words but I would still recommend it for students in 5th grade and up. There is a suggested vocabulary list but you can modify it for your students. Mac and Beth are told by a witch that Mac will become king. Beth talks Mac into helping things along by killing the old king. The witch, who seems to be in things only for her own twisted means, tells Mac that he is pretty invincible which is true but not quite right. Mac takes it to heart and makes some terrible choices. He kills Macduff’s family. Macduff joins with the old king’s son, Malcom, and together they storm the castle and Mac is killed. Everyone but Mac and Beth live happily ever after. I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place. My name is Melanie Whitesides but I my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
