Something wickedly funny this way comes
WAXAHACHIE - On May 9 and 10, Ellis County Christian Homeschool Organization’s theatre troupe presented Scots on the Rocks, a hilarious spoof of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Singing witches, three murderous stooges and a Macbeth bearing a strange resemblance to legendary funnyman Lou Costello keep the laughs coming.
