Saint Joseph’s College is proud to host the Actors From The London Stage February 10-16. During its weeklong stay, the troupe will tour campus, hold several workshops with students, and perform William Shakespeare’s comedy “As You Like It” two nights, February 14 and 15, in the Evans Arts and Science Building Theatre.
SJC Associate Professor of Communication and Theatre Arts John Rahe, Associate Professor of Communication Fred Berger, and Associate Professor of English Dr. Maia Hawthorne are looking forward to the arrival of the Actors From The London Stage. They will host the actors in some of their classes, and students will have the opportunity to participate in several workshops being held by the actors, who hail from such prestigious companies as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre of Great Britain, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
The actors’ stay culminates with two performances of “As You Like It.” As opposed to the normally large cast that comes with a traditional Shakespeare play, the Actors From The London Stage will perform all the roles with only five actors. The set will be very minimalist as the actors try to convey the meaning of the play using only Shakespeare’s words.
SJC has also collaborated with local venue eMbers for a special Valentine’s Day package. On Friday, February 14 – Valentine’s Day – eMbers will host a dinner beginning at 5:30 pm CST. At 7:00 pm, a bus will shuttle attendees to the Evans Arts and Science Building Theatre, where the show will begin at 7:30 pm.
The cost of the package is $32, which also includes an after party featuring designer desserts, musical entertainment, and special Valentine drink specials from a full cash bar. If you cannot attend the dinner but want to attend the after party, the cost is $7 in addition to $10 for a ticket to the play. For more information on the Valentine’s Day package, visit www.embersvenue.com or alumni.saintjoe.edu/events.
