Henry V

Directed by Kelly Elliott

June 21 - July 7

THE PLAY

THE CAST

From the chorus' impassioned plea of "Oh, for a muse of fire!" through Henry's rousing "Once more into the breach!" to the awkwardly gentle, yet optimistic marriage proposal designed to unite England and France in peace - this beloved and most well known of Shakespeare's histories is a perfect compliment to your picnic on an early summer evening!

As the Duke & his men return from war, the hospitality of Noble Leonato, sets a young soldier, Claudio to fall in love with Leonato's fair daugher, Hero, while reigniting a battle of wits between cynical adversaries, Beatrice & Benedick. A rollicking mix of masquerades, pranks, romance, villainy, and a hearty dose of downright foolishness makes Much Ado a favorite of Shakespeare's comedies.
