This famous quote from Shakespeare’s “Henry The V” will be heard on July 22, 23, 29 and 30th at 3:00 pm in Mingus Park in Coos Bay, Oregon. The Logos Players, in concert with Dolphin Players and Liberty Theater, are holding the second annual Shakespeare in the Park. “Henry The V” will be performed under the direction of John Beane. Admission is free!
Starting at 2:30 pm will be the Green Show featuring a recorder group, The Fipples, performing music from the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras.
Also performing will be the Side of the Tide Morris Dance Troupe who’s specialty is 16th-century dances from the English-Welsh border. The Fipples are a fun group and have a lot of fun playing. Morris dancing is some of the most energetic folk dancing going. They wear bells sometimes from knee to ankle and wield sticks.
Henry V will start at 3:00 pm with a 28 member, local cast. Set in England in the early fifteenth century, the play begins as a young Henry is crowned King. There are battles, swords, knights and soldiers, heroics and victories that will enthrall you as part of the audience!
Henry V is sponsored by grants from the Coquille Tribal Community Fund and the Coos County Cultural Coalition. Started in 2009, the Logos Players were created to provide quality entertainment that supports local non-profit organizations. They have donated over $28,000 in ticket sale proceeds.
