Macbeth scripts for kids and teens. Two fantastic short versions of this Shakespeare play!

The collection of Shakespeare pieces on the Drama Notebook website have been created and edited by professional Shakespearean actors.

Included are:
  • Macbeth in two pages
  • Macbeth in seven pages

The scripts move along quickly with the device of a narrator, yet keep the original dialogue so that students can feel like real Shakespearean actors.

To create an easy Shakespeare performance, use the short scripts on this website so that every student has a meaningful role. To expand any piece, ask students to read the play in its entirety and choose a soliloquy to add into the play. This can be completely elective, allowing interested students to take the work further.

Additionally, students can be invited to choose a sonnet to perform either alone or with a partner between the plays presented on performance day!

We also have Macbeth in Eleven Lines, and Macbeth in One Hour.
