Henry V

Henry V

Shakespeare’s legendary history of a great king and the people in his path!

Directed by Garrison Martt

September 30th thru October 22nd, 2011
8:00pm

The character of Henry V is one the most heroic warriors
Shakespeare created and his speeches are famous.

However the strength of any leader is measured by those
who support him – or resist him. The flower of friendship
is a luxury Henry wishes to enjoy, however the sword of
kingship is a necessity. How can this king balance both
to victory and fruition? What sacrifices must be made?

There are many fascinating characters in this tale:
an eloquent chorus introduces parts of the play,
a refined and powerful enemy threatens to destroy
Henry’s army while a band of ruffians seek fortunes
of war. English and Welsh soldiers serve their king
while French noblemen serve theirs – each in their
own unique way.

Old friends, trusted kinsmen, young traitors,
cultured adversaries, loyal followers, townspeople,
courtiers and lovers – all are part of this great drama!

Henry V Cast and Crew

We had many talented actors from all over Austin come out and thoroughly rock The Curtain’s stage during auditions. This show, in particular, pulled in actors interested in performing one of Shakespeare’s most beloved histories, as well as the challenge of portraying multiple characters. It was a difficult decision for Garrison (Director) and Pam (Assistant Director), but they made some awesome choices.
