Workshops have been taking place throughout the week with local schools and aim to land the children right at the centre of the tale, using story-telling, movie-quality sound and projections to bring the story to life.
Ben Walden, actor and director of Macbeth — blood will have blood, said: 'In Contender Charlie's years of working in schools we have found Macbeth holds a particular fascination for many children.
"Macbeth is partly a play about the abuse of power, and perceptions of power are a major theme in the life of young people.
"Our production looks to explore this and ask questions about what is involved in using power wisely and ethically in the service of more than just our own interests."
