This semi-formal event, the first-ever fundraiser for the Mysterium Theater, promises a full evening of top-flight entertainment. First up at A Winter's Eve is a wine and appetizer reception, where you can browse and bid on silent auction items. That's followed by a seated dinner, set to include Cornish game hen, an orzo and vegetable combo, salad, dessert and hot cider, or wassail. Then you'll be treated to a musical revue featuring hits from the Great American Songbook by the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, performed by a cast of 24 of Mysterium's finest actor-singers. As a capper to this festive evening, take advantage of the quick ballroom and swing lesson, so you can dance the rest of the night away to big-band music. Learn More

This is Shakespeare OC's first history play in over 20 years, and like all of their work - it is a superb production. The acting - direction - accessibility to the text - "We will say that we were there on St. Crispin's Day!"
Treat yourselves to WONDERFUL THEATRE!!!!

I totally recommend this play. It is well staged and acted in the unique outdoor theatre in Garden Grove.
I also recommend the fun 7:30 p.m. pre-show, too. Come with a picnic dinner and enjoy it on the lawn while watching the pre-show.
Shakespeare Orange County's season starts off with Shakespeare’s history, Henry V. The story of one of England’s most respected monarchs, Henry V, known for uniting Britain, in a successful quest for the unification of both England and France. Set against the backdrop of war, Shakespeare’s epic work questions the subject of war.
The Bard’s examination of the dynasty of Britain’s very own House of Lancaster is known for its famous speeches, as well as a courageous king and his undaunted men’s pursuit of victory in a long shot battle against the French. After four centuries, Henry V remains a shining star in the canon of world literature. Directing the production is SOC company member Carl Reggiardo, with David Denman (NBC’s The Office) slated to play Henry.
