Macbeth, a brave Scottish general (played by Benjamin Gullett), receives a prophecy from a trio of witches (Paula CampagnaMadison HatfieldMicaela Countryman) that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife (Stormi Bledsoe), Macbeth murders the king and takes the throne for himself.

The bloodbath swiftly takes Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into realms of arrogance, madness, and death.
