Get ready San Angelo. This June Be Theatre’s Shakespeare on the Concho is bringing you Macbeth like you’ve never seen it before—Sons of Anarchy style. Shakespeare set with outlaw biker gangs. So the story goes…
Macbeth rescues King Duncan during a violent rebellion. After the battle, Three Weird Sisters appear and tell Macbeth he will be king. Duncan comes to stay at Macbeth’s home where he is assassinated, and Macbeth becomes King. Fearing his friend Banquo is a rival, Macbeth has him killed. But when Banquo’s ghost haunts Macbeth, he seeks out the sisters for counsel. Macduff, and Duncan’s son Malcolm, lead a rebel army against Macbeth while Lady Macbeth goes mad and commits suicide. Macduff kills Macbeth and Malcolm becomes King. Join us for our 5th annual Shakespeare on the Concho in this modern, twisted version of the Shakespearean classic!
Shakespeare on the Concho returns again for its 5th year with Macbeth. Auditions are coming up. Details below.

Nothing is final yet, but Shakespeare on the Concho is looking at options to expand its performances to a third weekend. But this third weekend would not be simply adding performances at the Art Museum. Instead we will take the show on the road. Locations are yet undetermined but talks are taking place with the communities in Mertzon, Ballinger, Eden and possibly Christoval. The show in 2018 is Macbeth, directed by Stoddard Owens.
