Bainbridge Performing Arts will host the BPA Theatre School’s Spring Play Festival, featuring four unique productions, from June 4 to 7.

Students will perform “The Macbeth Project,” “Beginning Broadway & Group Voice I,” “Jason and the Argonauts,” and “Odin’s Undoing: The Norse Edda.”

“The Macbeth Project,” is an adaptation of the classic Shakespeare drama which opens with the Three Witches, and takes viewers through the misty moors of Scotland as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth enact a plan to overthrow the rightful king.

Led by director Tom Challinor, “The Macbeth Project” is sure to entertain.

Performances are at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 4 and 6 p.m. Thursday, June 5.

The double feature of “Beginning Broadway & Group Voice I” will feature songs and poems backed by a live band. Music will range from showtunes to modern pop. The show is directed by Emily Kight and Michelle Abad.

“Beginning Broadway & Group Voice I” will show for one performance only, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 4.

The Theatre School’s mythologically-themed double feature, “Jason and the Argonauts” and “Odin’s Undoing: The Norse Edda” will offer audience members an exciting trip back in time throughout two separate performances.

“Jason and the Argonauts,” directed by Emily Kight, tells of the hero Jason who is usurped from his rightful place in the kingdom and then gathers the greatest heroes of the land and sets sail on an epic voyage to find the Golden Fleece.

In this new retelling of the Argonautica by local playwright Liz Ellis, viewers follow the journey of the mighty Argo through the trials and tribulations of ancient Greece on his path to the Golden Fleece. This is an action-packed adventure sure to be epic fun for the whole family.

Performances are at 6 p.m. Friday, June 6 and 1 p.m. Saturday, June 7.

“Odin’s Undoing,” directed by Josh Anderson, is a more cautionary tale.

Odin, king of Asgard, has let his pride get the better of him and all of the Nine Worlds have been sent into chaos. Thor and his mighty hammer are no match for the Midgard Serpent and Loki has raised an army of Frost Giants.

This new adaptation of the poetic and prose Norse Eddas by Josh Anderson includes memorable heroes and epic storytelling, and is sure to have your whole family cheering on the Scandinavian heroes and giants as they battle for the fate of the world.

Performances are at 6:50 p.m. Friday, June 6 and 1:50 p.m. Saturday, June 7.

Tickets for each show are $10 each, or $5 for senior, youth, students, military and teachers.

Tickets for each of the Spring Play Festival’s three exciting performances may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North.

Bainbridge Performing Arts extends special thanks to BPA Theatre School’s Season Presenting Sponsor Aberown Studio.
