This project entailed the selection, background research and documentation, play analysis, casting, direction, vocal coaching, and post-production analysis of Newberg High School's production of Hendrea Ferguson's Macbeth. Documentation included research and analysis of the play, and an evaluation of the play as a production vehicle for the department of Theatre Arts at Central Washington University. The analysis also includes a discussion as to the non-traditional directorial vision of this production.
