BOYS OWN MCBETH

A really rotten Rock Musical!
 

Blackwood Players

Written and Composed by Grahame Bond 

Written by Jim Burnett

Orchestrations by Stephen Gray

Directed by Chris Overton

 

Terry Shakespeare has been a student at Dunsinane Boys’ School for 36 years. In that time he has only managed to reach Year 11 and has no intentions of reaching Year 12. Why does a man stay at school for so long?

 

At the age of 15, Terry saw no future in the outside world. So in a bid to remain at Dunsinane forever, he married the Tuckshop lady and soon became a father of twins. When his wife died in childbirth, she left a large bequest to the school on the condition that her husband and children receive full board and education at Dunsinane until their graduation. Unfortunately for the school and its board the Shakespeares have never graduated, because of their innate ability to fail.

 

But now the Board is putting pressure on the headmaster to get rid of the Shakespeares. In an attempt to get Terry a pass mark, the headmaster tricks him into directing the school play, Macbeth, little knowing what Shakespeare will do to the tragedy.

 

'In a bizarre send-up of the happiest days of your life, the authors have assembled a cast of swots, crawlers, stirrers and dunces into a pantomime which has taken the Australian public by storm, both for its outrageous antics and appealing music and, more seriously, its glimpse of the doubts and confusion which haunt the school-leaver. Boy’s Own McBeth toured Australia and the US from 1979 until 1982. It was the longest running Australian written musical ever..staged with more than 600 performances and was only eclipsed in the 1990’s by The Boy From Oz
