Shakespeare In Mingus Park July 22nd


 
 
The Logos Players, in association with Dolphin Players and Liberty Theatre, announce Shakespeare in the Park. Under the direction of John Beane, Henry V will be performed in Mingus Park on July 22nd, 23rd, 29th and 30th at 3pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
 
Bring a picnic and enjoy the Green Show at 2:30pm. Featured performers include The Fipples, a local recorder ensemble with a repertoire from the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras; Side of the Tide Morris Dance Troupe, specializing in 16th century dances from the English-Welsh border.
 
Then at 3pm, a local 28-member cast will perform the tale of Henry V. The play is set in England in the early fifteenth century as young King Henry V assumes the throne. Several civil wars have left the people of England restless and angry. To gain respect of the English people and the court, Henry must live down his wild adolescent past, when he used to consort with thieves and drunkards at the Boar’s Head Tavern on the seedy side of London. The play focuses on the Battle of Agincourt. Thrill to battle scenes and swords! Mingus Park will explode with righteous victories and unbridled heroics.
 
The production is being made possible thanks to generous grants from the Coquille Tribal Community Fund and Coos County Cultural Coalition. The Logos Players was established in 2009 to provide quality performances which support local non-profit organizations. The group has donated over $28,000 in ticket sale proceeds to local charitable organizations since its inception. For more information, visit coosbayshakespeare.org or call 541-808-1002.
