Austin Shakespeare continues its decades-long tradition of presenting a free show at Zilker Park’s Hillside Theater with a new production of “Macbeth” that has a modern military look — along with plenty of sword fights and creepy witches, of course.

Marc Pouhé reprises his acclaimed 2008 portrayal of Macbeth while Helen Merino stars as Lady Macbeth. Picnics, blankets to lounge on and pups on leashes are welcome.

Details: 8 p.m. Thursday-Sunday through May 29. Free. Zilker Hillside Theater, Zilker Park. austinshakespeare.org.
