Shakespeare STARS presents “Macbeth” March 5-8 at Birmingham’s Virginia Samford Theatre. The heroic Macbeth has just won two battles for Scotland when he encounters three witches who tell him this is only the beginning of his path to glory. At first, the honest and upright Macbeth ignores the predictions, but when they start coming true he feels invincible and yearns for more power. “Macbeth” reveals to us the danger of ambition, crafting a terrifying parable in which great people are destroyed by the power of their own success. Recommended for fifth grade and older. The play is directed by Jessica Clark. Performances are Thursday-Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 11 a.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Get tickets at virginiasamfordtheatre.org.
