Due to the tragic effects of the current global health crisis, the Chetco Pelican Players decided that they would do everything they could to continue providing quality entertainment for our community while maintaining safe distances to keep our friends and neighbors safe.
The result of this endeavor was an unprecedented large-scale audio drama performed and recorded remotely by actors from across Oregon and Washington.
Directed by Boyd Allen, using the script adapted by Katlyn Temple, Macbeth began as a typical stage production, but became swiftly reworked into a brand new audio play through the hard work and determination of the entire cast and crew.
The brave Scottish General Macbeth happens upon a trio of witches who proclaim that he will become the King of Scotland. With little to no prior thoughts or ambitions towards the crown, Macbeth finds himself committing the ultimate sin of regicide and is quickly launched into a physical and mental struggle to maintain his kingship from the threats and enemies that he sees around every corner… whether they are there or not.

Thank you for supporting the arts!
“Performing arts groups across America are currently struggling to pay their bills and make sure their doors will one day open to the public again. This project is a free gift from the Chetco Pelican Players to their dedicated patrons and to the greater Brookings-Harbor Community. This program was made possible through hundreds of hours of volunteer work from more than a dozen actors, who rehearsed and recorded their lines remotely in their homes this Spring, during the height of the state’s COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.
The arts don’t just entertain during dark times—they bring diverse groups of people together to promote empathy and appreciation of the shared human experience. The Chetco Pelican Players thank you for your continued appreciation and support of the performing arts.
