Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre presents Henry VIII
Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre presents Henry VIII by William Shakespeare, directed by Christy Arington & Elizabeth Laidlaw.
Politics and personal life collide in Shakespeare’s tale of lust and loyalty. Examining what’s best for a leader and what’s best for his country, this late history play dramatizes Henry’s historic divorce from Queen Katharine, his marriage to Anne Boleyn and the birth of his daughter, the future Queen Elizabeth I.
Parking is available on the north side of Park Avenue, on M-22, and in the St. Ann Church parking lot across M-22.
Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets, low chairs, picnics and appropriate outdoor clothing. There is no trash pick-up in the park, so please take your empty bottles, trash & other items with you at the end of the night.
Performances will take place in all weather, as long as it is deemed safe to do so and the audience remains.
