Directed by Kevin Theis
Kevin Theis has directed four previous productions for Festival Theatre – Picnic, Robin Hood, Cyrano de Bergerac, and the touring company’s production of Shakespeare: Scenes, Sonnets and Songs. As a performer, he has appeared in a number of OPFT shows, most recently as Frank in Faith Healer, Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing, and George in Of Mice and Men. Other directing credits include last summer’s Michigan Shakespeare Festival production of Comedy of Errors, as well as productions at Lifeline Theatre, City Lit, Buffalo Theatre Ensemble, CT20 Ensemble, and Seanachai Theatre, where he is an ensemble member. Theis has been nominated for three Joseph Jefferson awards for his directing work.
Theis says about this play: “Henry V remains one of literature’s most profound and complex meditations on both the horror and the unfortunate necessity of war. Inspiring, heartbreaking, ruthless, and uplifting, this play showcases everything that a patriot and a warrior can represent."
The cast of 21 is led by Dennis Grimes as King Henry, Belinda Bremner as the Chorus, Aaron Christensen as Pistol, and OPFT artistic director Jack Hickey as Fluellen.
