Welcome to the world 0/ 

William Shakespeare 

The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to present the Shakespeare in 
American Communities Military Base Tour. This unprecedented collaboration among 
the Arts Endowment, the Department of Defense, and Arts Midwest brings the 
Alabama Shakespeare Festival's production of Macbeth on tour to thirteen military 
bases. A special appropriation from Congress supports this program. 

This performance and related activities are part of Shakespeare in American 
Communities, the largest tour of Shakespeare in American history. Over a two-year 
period, twenty-nine professional theater companies are performing Shakespeare in 
200 small and mid-sized towns in all fifty states. 

As our country now has the best-educated, best-trained military in our nation's 
history, the Arts Endowment has made a conscious effort to extend programs of artistic 
excellence, including Shakespeare in American Communities, to the men, women, and 
their families in all four military services. We look forward to bringing the greatest 
playwright in the English language to the greatest military in the world. 

I would like to thank the honorary co-chairs of Shakespeare in American Communities, 
Mrs. Laura Bush and jack Valenti, former president and CEO of the Motion Picture 
Association of America. Their enthusiastic support has greatly enriched the program. 

Now, I invite you to sit back, listen, watch, and be amazed at the wonder that 
is Shakespeare.

The Next 

King oj^Scotland 

In Macbeth, the Last and shortest of his four great tragedies, WiUiam Shal<espeare begins 
his story immediately following a feat of extraordinary military courage and heroism. After 
single-handedly crushing a revolt and an invasion on the same day, Macbeth — and then his 
wife Lady Macbeth — are sorely tempted and tested by the promise of ultimate power. Yet 
they can only achieve the kingship by a dishonorable course of action — murdering their 
beloved patron and relative, King Duncan. In spite of terrible voices and visions warning 
the Macbeths of the likely outcome of such a murder, they decide to kill Duncan while 
he is a guest in their own house. Their decision indeed makes Macbeth into the next King 
of Scotland but destroys their peace as fear feeds on fear, guilt corrodes their souls, murder 
follows murder, the nobles revolt, and the natural world around them rages in protest. 
Without sleep, without contentment, without the support of love, the Macbeths face 
their desperate and terrifying ends alone. 

In designing this production, we wanted to create a bold contrast between the sensual, 
passionate, and earthy world of medieval Scotland and the pristine, calculating world of 
Christian England. With costume designs inspired by the appealing (if ahistorical) look of 
Braveheart, the Scots are strong, virile warriors at the end of a long Celtic tradition, as the 
play's stark stone setting suggests. At the same time, we hoped to reinforce the terror that 
the Macbeths unleash on the primitive world of Celtic Scotland with a musical score that 
is filled with not only the calls of wild animals but also human cries, moans, and screams. 

Written more than 400 years ago, Macbeth remains potent today. Ultimately, this 
famous play is a cautionary tale of the dangerous, intoxicating temptation of ultimate power. 
Once undertaken, the murder of Duncan poisons the entire world of the play as Macbeth 
takes the road to total tyranny — killing anyone and everyone in his way. His fall from "the 
best and brightest" to bloody tyrant is astonishing and shocking in its speed, but it also 
reveals the troubling, dark soul of human evil. 

We are delighted to bring this terrific play to a new audience — ^the brave men and women 
of our Armed Forces. We hope that you and your families will enjoy this great Shakespearean 
tragedy and we invite you to let us know your reaction, thoughts or comments about the 
show. We can be reached via e-mail at or by telephone at (334) 271-5300.
