The theater postponed its opening of “Macbeth” on July 11 because of heavy smoke from surrounding wildfires. The production officially opened on July 18.

Guests are asked to arrive at 7 p.m. Thursday and park at the UA Museum of the North’s rear parking lot and follow the path to the theater’s outdoor show. It’s performed at Jack Townshend Point on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus.
