Shakespeare by the Sea features ‘Henry V’
Enjoy an enchanting night under the stars experiencing one of Shakespeare’s most famous and dramatic plays – “Henry V” – performed by Shakespeare by the Sea on Friday, July 19.
The production begins at 7 pm along the Village Green near the Norman Murray Community Center at 24932 Veterans Way.
The play features stirring, heroic speeches that fire the audience’s imagination at every phrase as the English – though outnumbered – prepare to battle and conquer the French. The St. Crispin soliloquy is so inspiring you’ll get chills if you remember Sir Laurence Olivier’s delivery of those immortal lines. Its theme of heroism with king, queen, dukes, earls, lords, ladies and army captains in period garb will appeal to young and old alike. The production is full of pageantry, gallantry, chivalry and valor.
This free performance is sponsored by the City’s Cultural Arts Committee and the Mission Viejo Friends of the Arts. Though the event is free, you can purchase VIP seating online at this link. For more information, call 949-470-8440.
