Preview: Macbeth

California State University, Stanislaus is hosting the play “Macbeth” by William Shakespeare in the amphitheater on April 30 through May 5 with free admission to students and the public.
The gates will open at 6:30 p.m., pre-show entertainment is at 7:30 p.m. and the play will start at around 8:30 p.m.
“I am looking forward to the play, especially because it’s free and outside so you don’t have to sit inside a building on a warm night.” Dustin Baisdon (sophomore, Kinesology) said.
The play is directed by CSU Stanislaus Professor of Theatre Jere O’Donnell with a special guest Chicago-based professional actor Daniel Gately.
The play will be held in the open-air amphitheater where guests are encouraged to bring low back chairs and blankets.
“I think it’s awesome and it’s going to be a great experience, not many people get to come to a Shakespeare play for free,” Baisdon said.
Macbeth is a supernatural tale of a Scottish lord’s lust for power and its repercussions.
The play is filled with more twists, turns, betrayal and death following the tragic rise and downfall of Macbeth.
“I’ve heard that this play was good but I’ve never had a chance to see it,” Baisdon said. “But now that I do, and for free, I’m definitely going.”
Admission and parking is free for all guests who park in Lot 3.
