God bless Shakespeare he really knew how to spin a tale. And this weekend we can watch one of his most celebrated performed under the stars.

Ten Bucks Theater has proudly to announce this year's selection for theie annual Shakespeare Under The Stars event Macbeth. hey detail the story this way:

The infamous tragedy explores Macbeth’s rise from celebrated war hero to his bloody and brief reign as King of medieval Scotland. Driven by grief and supernatural prophecy as well as the towering ambition of his wife, Macbeth leaves in his wake a path of murder, deceit and destruction. The play explores the nature of loss, the price of war and the lengths one is willing to go to rise above one’s circumstances.

You will actually have several opportunities to see this production the first being at Brewer's Indian Head Park. The show will be there Thursday through Saturday July 19, 20, and 21 at  6 pm and Sunday July 22 at 4 pm. Bring blankets, folding chairs and a picnic and enjoy Shakespeare Under the Stars. And if you don’t want to pack a picnic on Thursday night no worries the YumBus food truck will be with us on July 19 and Darling’s Ice Cream Truck for a Cause joins us July 22!!!
