Actors from the London Stage present The Merchant of Venice
Sat, October 6, 2012 • 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM • Winedale Theater Barn- Round Top, Texas
Actors from the London Stage returns to The University of Texas at Austin this fall with a production of The Merchant of Venice. Employing just five actors to assume all the roles in a Shakespearean drama, Actors from the London Stage performances are minimalist in terms of props and staging, intimate and compelling. The performances emphasize language, characterization, and dramatic energy; the results are startlingly clear and powerful, even magical, for audiences of all ages in a way that large-scale productions in the big theaters of Stratford and London can never be. The actors also lead workshops in classes around campus.
This year's residency will begin on October 1, and performances will be October 3-5, at 7:30pm at the Hogg Auditorium on campus. Tickets to on-campus performances are available on the UT Performing Arts Center Website. Tickets are $20 general admission, $10 for all UT ID holders, college and non-college students, and seniors. Please be aware that there are service charges associated with purchasing tickets from the UT PAC.
For an extra special performance of The Merchant of Venice, come out to Winedale for the Saturday night performance at 7:00 on October 6. Tickets to the Winedale AFTLS performance are available now. Tickets are $10 for UT ID holders and non-UT students; $20 for others.
