Heidelberg University’s School of Music & Theatre is to present the William Shakespeare classic “Macbeth” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in Gundlach Theatre.

The tale of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth delves into the complexities of human nature as the brave general receives a prophesy from a trio of witches that he will become king of Scotland. A great epic is spun as the two plot and conspire for the throne, only to be tested in unimaginable ways in their hunt for glory, ambition and power.

Under the direction of Stephen Svoboda, this adaptation will come with some unexpected twists and surprises. In his adaptation, Heidelberg actors and actresses reflect the chaos in Macbeth’s world with music from the grunge and counter culture eras of the 1990s and 2000s.

Cast members include Austin Burkhalter as Macbeth and Kanzie James as Lady Macbeth. Remaining cast members include (they will portray multiple roles) Hollie Dunn, Ethan Miller, Elias Rousculp, Caira Goldstein, Candra Goerk, Connor Applegate, Kaylea Bowers, Emma Swain, Sam Stohlman, Shane Souders, Madison Swyers, Gavin Buurma, McCartney Betz, Pree Bryant, James Ogle, Kyrsten Lilly, Paige Hood, Joe Boehler, April Hall, Adam Robinson and Riley Gibson.
