To commemorate the Missouri Bicentennial, Maplewood Barn Community Theatre will produce three plays in 2021 with a Missouri theme, featuring the work of a Missouri playwright, a Missouri subject matter, or a Missouri setting. The three shows selected showcase the wonderful talent of Missouri playwrights, the exciting history and stories of Missouri’s culture and heritage, and the majestic landscapes of this beautiful state. The season continues with “Henry V” by William Shakespeare: July 8-11 & July 15-18. Box office opens at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. Tickets are $13 for adults and $5 for kids 10 and up. Visit MaplewoodBarn.com for more info.
In the original version of this show, King Henry V of England invades France to claim the throne he believes should be his. Henry stops an assassination plot, gives powerful speeches, and wins battles against the odds. In the end, he woos and marries the Princess of France, linking the two nations. BUT...our version is set in Missouri! Stay tuned to see how we give this Shakespearian classic a Missouri twist!
