CHELMSFORD -- Steel yourself for Brave New Players' upcoming presentation of Shakespeare's cursed and spellbinding tragedy, "Macbeth."

Brave New Players is a first-year educational Shakespearean theater program for home-schooled youths ages 10-18, operated by the nonprofit LGBTQIA+ inclusive organization, Brave New Shakespeare. To be as inclusive as possible, all actors are considered for all parts, and once they're cast, the actors pick the pronouns for their characters and explore their character's gender expression in costuming.

Four exciting performances will be held at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts, 1A North Road, on Thursday, April 11, Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, April 14, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $6 and are available at https://brave newshakespeare., or at the door.
