April 7, 2015 – The King’s College Theatre Department will close the curtain on its 65th theatrical season with productions of William Shakespeare’s history play, “Henry V,” at 7:30 p.m. April 15-19 and at 2 p.m. April 18 in the George P. Maffei II Theatre.
Shakespeare’s timeless account of Henry V is full of politics, patriotism, and heroism. After abandoning a wild, adolescent past, Shakespeare chronicles King Henry’s struggle to unite his divided countrymen as he stakes his claim for the throne of France. Transporting the audience between the dingy streets of Eastcheap in London to the muddy fields of Agincourt, Shakespeare’s most beloved history is sure to please. The audience will be wowed by Henry’s glorious speeches that speak to the bloody realities of war and the turmoil decisions he faces since being thrust into the monarchy.
The production of “Henry V” features a cast composed of King’s student, faculty, staff and alumni. Featured actors include Kyle McCormack, Mountain Top (Henry); Betty Montgomery, Philadelphia (Chorus); Peter Kmec, Košice, Slovakia (Exeter); Cara Medwick, Hawthorne, N.J., (Dauphin); Jessica Mulligan, Bethlehem (Montjoy); Trevor Marszalek (Orleans); Amanda Kotch, Dallas (Katherine); Jonathan Vojtko, Wyoming (Hotspur); Jacob Quinn (Pistol); and Jarred Stagen, Lord’s Valley (Nym).
The George P. Maffei II Theatre is located in the Administration Building on North River Street. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $7 for senior citizens, and $5 for King’s alumni and non-King’s students.
