Theatre Presents Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy Macbeth


Brevard College Theatre’s final main stage show of the season promises thrills, chills, and some of the English-speaking world’s most powerful language.

Directed by faculty member Dan Toot, this 7-actor adaptation of MacBeth explores a highly physical, ensemble-driven telling of this classic story, asking the questions: What happens when human nature comes up against the forces of nature? When the smoke and dust of our lives clear away, will it all have been worth it?

Amidst the spells, curses, sword fights, and sieges lies a story of two people who desperately want more for themselves and each other. This play is about 2 hours long with one intermission, and audience members are invited to join the student company for activities post-performance!

The opening night show will be followed with a toast for the cast and crew, which the audience is welcome to attend.

The Saturday night performance will be followed with a talkback with Brevard College English Professor Dr. Adam Mills discussing horror in literature and storytelling.

Sunday’s matinee performance will conclude with a closing toast to celebrate a wonderful production, the 2023-2024 season, our Senior Capstone performers — Taylor Sparrow and Anna Ervin — and the exciting work created by the Brevard College Theatre artists this year.
