“Shakespeare goblins veer from inspired lunacy to riveting command of the language. Unpredictable, unrestrained and uninhibited, Goblin: Macbeth is the stage equivalent of a theme park funhouse ride.” The Calgary Herald
When three Goblins come across a copy of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare, they’re intrigued by a writer who clearly knows his witches, faeries, goblins and monsters. They decide to co-opt a theatre space and cajole an audience into participating in their first attempt at “doing theatre”. They choose Macbeth because it’s short…and has lots of blood! Get set for a unique theatre experience with this joyfully interactive production.
“…absolutely brilliant. A perfect mix of high-quality, precision Shakespeare, ingenious creativity, and cleverly crafted humour.” Calgary theatre patron
Originally produced by The Shakespeare Company and Hit and Myth Productions in Calgary. A Spontaneous Theatre creation by Rebecca Northan, with Bruce Horak. Original music by Ellis Lalonde

*Every little bit helps….if you would like to show your support and appreciation for our work, we welcome gratuities.
We specialize in creating daring productions that feature an audience member as the star of the show.
We are an ensemble of some of Canada’s top improv and theatre talent, lead by Canadian Comedy Award winner, Rebecca Northan.
“spontaneous theatre” also describes our genre of theatre, combining rigorous narrative structure with the thrill of improvisation, our productions not only have audiences leaning forward in their seats, but also encourage repeat viewings, as no two shows are ever the same.
