William Shakespeare’s play, “Macbeth,” will take the stage at Texas State for a series of April shows.

Directed by Charles Ney, the play, which is a tale of ambition and murder, will run April 2-4, and April 7-9, at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a matinee on April 5, at 2 p.m. All performances will be on the main stage of the Texas State theater building.

Macbeth is known in the theater community as the “Scottish Play,” due to a superstition that saying the name of the play in the theater will bring bad luck.

Admission is $10 for the general public, and $7 for students with a Texas State ID. Tickets can be purchased at the University Box Office in the theater building, or by calling (512) 245-2204.

For more information about the production, call the theater department at (512) 245-2147.
