Music News – Shakespeare Style!

March 24th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

3-26-09MuNewsThat’s my 12-year old nephew MAX BEHRENS, who will be starring in the title role of MACBETH at ST. RITA’S SCHOOL this weekend.  Seeing as how I never read any Shakespeare, I will be there to find out if Maxbeth succeeds in taking the throne from the king or not.  I did catch a bit of their dress rehearsal last Friday, and if Lady Macbeth has anything to say about it, they will be royalty one way or another!  Two performances of class and culture (or should I say murder and mayhem?) for a mere $3, Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.  See complete details below…
