Ian was lucky enough to get his first choice role. He played the nobleman Macduff. It was an exciting and challenging role for him to play. He had to stretch himself to act out some big emotions on stage, which pushed him out of his comfort zone. But come performance night, he was great! Plus, he had to wear a kilt (being that they were in Scotland), but he wore it like a true Scot.
Ian (as Macduff) started the play with a bit of dancing. But this happy moment wouldn't last long.
|Oh, what fun to dance in a circle|
|"Awake, awake! Ring the alarum-bell. Murder and treason!"|
|"Our royal master's murdered!"|
|Macduff learns that Macbeth killed the suspected murderers (aka, patsies).|
|Macduff meeting with Angus and Ross|
|"Be not lacking in your speech: how goes't?"|
|"He has no children. All my pretty ones? Did you say all? O hell-kite! All? What, all my pretty chickens and their dam at one fell swoop? "|
|"But, gentle heavens, bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself; Within my sword's length set him; If he escape, heaven forgive him too!"|
|"Turn, hell-hound, turn! I have no words. My voice is in my sword, thou bloodier villain than terms can give thee out!"|
|"Despair thy charm; Macduff was from his mother's womb untimely ripped."|
|"Then yield thee, coward!"|
|"Behold, where stands the usurper's cursed head."|
