CAST opens theater season with Macbeth

Columbia Center for the Arts and CAST Theatre in Hood River opens the 2013/2014 season with the Tragedy of Macbeth.

Macbeth is a bloody tale of desire, twisted morality, vengeance, and restitution. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors have banded together against their enemies: loyalties are tested, friendships are torn apart, and super-natural elements begin to tear through the fabric of the material world in order to destroy or save it.

The show opens on Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and continues on Oct. 11,12,17,18, and 19 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Oct. 13 at 2 p.m.

Tickets for the Scottish play are $18 for adults, $15 for students and seniors, $12 for groups of ten or more and are available at Columbia Center for the Arts, Waucoma Bookstore, and online at
