The 23rd season of the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival concludes with Richard II performed by the Kingsmen Shakespeare Company.
Often called a philosopher king, Richard II was certain of his divine right to rule. His faulty leadership, however, gives opening to a challenge to his monarchy and leads to 100 years of dynastic civil war. The play is filled with some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful and thought-provoking poetry as well the poignant fall from power of one of his most memorable characters. Directed by Michael J. Arndt.
The Kingsmen Shakespeare Company is the professional theater company of Cal Lutheran. The nonprofit organization coordinates apprentice programs for professional and aspiring Shakespearean actors, an educational tour for local schools, and summer theater camps for youth.
