MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will open “Macbeth” on Feb.14 in the Ted Paul Theatre at the Early Center for the Performing Arts.
Macbeth is the story of a brave Scottish general named who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia.
