For 43 years, Don Wooten has been re-writing Greek history. His history lessons are anything but serious or classroom-worthy, and that’s all right with him. Wooten, the founder of Genesius Guild theatre group, has most recently altered the more outdated sections of Aristophanes’ comedy Plutus to make its already-quirky script even quirkier and more accessible to modern audiences. Wooten has added musical numbers and touches of local humor about bridge construction and the Mallards hockey team, and he addresses national issues such as war, education, President Bush, and television infomercials. With a bit of assistance from Aristophanes, Wooten has produced an appealing script.

Witches, Murder, and Gold Shoes: Genesius Guild’s "Macbeth"

In this weather, I pity the actors in Genesius Guild’s production of Macbeth. In addition to the fact they’re on stage wearing three layers of clothing and toting swords, shows are performed at Rock Island’s Lincoln Park outdoor theatre, which draws little breeze, lots of bugs, and, of course, heat. Though these aren’t ideal conditions for actors, or for audience members, people willing to brave the heat for three hours and put on the bug spray will be more than pleased to see an incredibly well-done yet traditional version of one of Shakespeare’s great tragedies.

In the course of 20 minutes, more than 150 audience members met a principal with a fetish for riding crops and black leather, a “chalk-dust”-using English teacher, and a Latin instructor with bad hygiene. Then the secretary was murdered and dinner was casually served.

What a weekend it was for battles in the Quad Cities. Professional golfers matched strokes at the John Deere Classic. WCW wrestlers brawled at The MARK. But a battle of wits – a wrestling match of a subtler kind – was found at Rock Island’s Lincoln Park on Saturday night in the Genesius Guild production of Shakespeare’s Richard III.
