Emory & Henry College Presents “Pericles Prince of Tyre”

Studio Theatre

The Emory & Henry Arts Series and the Department of Theatre present the final production of the season , “Pericles Prince of Tyre,” Thursday through Saturday, April 10-12, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon, April 13 at 4 p.m. All performances are in the Studio Theatre on the E&H campus.

In this late romantic play by William Shakespeare, the young prince Pericles is presented with an impossible choice of solving a riddle, the solution of which would accuse the King of incest.  The hero flees across the countryside while avoiding the King's assassins and murderous pirates, and winning the hand of the young virtuous woman he loves.

The production is directed by Andrew Blasenak, who is completing his first year as a member of the Emory & Henry College theatre faculty.

Blasenak holds a master of fine arts degree in Shakespeare and performance from Mary Baldwin College. He has performed with the American Shakespeare Center, The Maryland Shakespeare Festival, the Actor's Shakespeare Company, and companies in Ohio, Michigan, Virginia and New York. He also holds a Ph.D. in theatre history, literature and criticism from The Ohio State University where his dissertation focused on the rehearsal practices and company structures of six major Shakespeare companies.

As director and fight director, he has worked on Othello (with Alison Bomber of the Royal Shakespeare Company), "King Lear," "The Three Sisters," "The Fair Maid of the Exchange," and Aeschylus's "The Persians" and the new plays "Behind the Arras," and "I Hope I'm in Cincinnati When the World Ends."

Seating is limited in the Studio Theatre, so a reservation is strongly urged.  Contact 276-944-6846 or pRrX!}#&$~Tx-6.i]#[RGVHujzlAd9\6vm_ for ticket rates and reservations.
