Royal Gambit is latest theatre production

February 22, 2012

Matthew Wise, a theatre and English education major from Mountain Home depicts King Henry VIII, and Kaylee Vance, a theatre major from Texarkana plays one of his wives, during “Royal Gambit.”

The Department of Theatre and Mass Communication at Southern Arkansas University has opens its latest theatrical production  “Royal Gambit” at 7 p.m. on February 22-23 and again February 28 through March 1.

Tickets for the production will be on sale at 6:30 p.m. each night by the backstage entry door into Harton Theatre. The house opens at 6:30 p.m..

Admission costs for SAU students, faculty, staff, spouses and school-age children is $3. General admission is $5. Seating is limited to 102 per show, and attendees should enter through the backstage door in Overstreet Hall.

This metaphysical portrait of Henry VIII and the six women in his life contrasts this king, the epitome of Renaissance man, with modern liberal thought and concludes that humanism is dead in the twentieth century.  This play is a riveting portrayal of King Henry and his six wives that you won’t want to miss!
