This April, the Numerica Performing Arts Center will present the last of the 2018-2019 Monthly Movies on the Big Screen, “The Breakfast Club,” at 6:30 p.m. April 10 and the Seattle Shakespeare Company’s “Macbeth” at 6:30 p.m. April 19.
‘The Breakfast Club’
In this popular 1980s movie, five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason) in “The Breakfast Club.” The disparate group includes rebel John (Judd Nelson), princess Claire (Molly Ringwald), outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy), brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) and Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently — and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.
The movie is rated R. Tickets are only $3. The show is sponsored by For The Love Of It with support by media sponsors ALPHA Media, Country 104.7 KKRV, ESPN Radio 900 & 1200, and 94.3 Jack FM.
Seattle Shakespeare Company’s ‘Macbeth’
This taut, pared-down, bilingual adaptation (English/Spanish) of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth tells a tale of murder and dark ambition. Through chance and murder, Macbeth seizes control with the help of his scheming wife and a trio of other-worldly witches. Urged on by eerie prophesies and ambitious desire, the ruthless soul slices through kinsmen, friend and foe in a bloody climb to power at any cost.
Performed by the Puget Sound region’s year-round, professional, classical theatre troupe, Seattle Shakespeare Company, directed by Ana Maria Campoy.
Tickets are $17-$21 with student and senior discounts. The show is supported by media sponsor 560 KPQ Newsradio.
