Feb. 14–25 Macbeth

William Shakespeare's dark tragedy comes to the stage in this post-modern retelling of the Scottish king's rise to power. Ruthlessly driven by his Lady, Macbeth is blinded by ambition, causing fate and brutality to collide — leaving a bloody trail of horror in the wake. Directed by David Long, Equity Guests include Greg Holt and Andrea Osborne. Call the Box Office at 512-448-8484 for more information.

Time: Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Location: Mary Moody Northen Theatre
Cost: Tickets are $10 for seniors, students, faculty and staff members. The adult ticket price is $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
