Montford Park Players, an Asheville theatrical tradition, is proud to announce their upcoming production of Henry IV, Part 1. All performances will be held at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre at 92 Gay Street in the heart of Asheville’s historic Montford District, from May 3 through May 25 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings at 7:30pm. This performance like ALL of Montford Park Players’ shows will be absolutely FREE to attend.

This is one of Shakespeare’s most entertaining and witty works. In telling the
story of the future King Henry V(Prince Hal), Shakespeare creates three worlds- the Tavern,
filled with witty banter and bawdy antics; a Court plagued with intrigue, led by a King stained
with the death of his predecessor; and a Rebellion led by the passionate, but flawed hero, a
“Mars in swaddling clothes.”
In this he creates wildly popular characters: Hotspur, the impetuous young lord whose valor and dedication to the pursuit of Honor vies for the audience’s vote for ‘who should be Prince of Wales”ǃ And he stumbles onto one of his greatest characters, the amoral, voluptuary (and incredibly funny) Falstaff who is often said, along with Hamlet, to be one of two ‘modern’
characters created by the Bard.
Montford Park Players has been presenting Shakespeare and other classical works to the Asheville community since 1973, and has since grown to be one of Western North Carolina’s most beloved and well-known cultural attractions.

Description:
It’s 1901. A deeply divided America, like the rest of the globe, is teetering on the brink of war. Politicians are manipulating the facts to curry public favor, and the media is spinning the public into a partisan-fueled frenzy, as our country is deciding its moral and philosophical destiny. Sound familiar? We think so, too. Even though it’s set at the turn of the 20th century, In the Assassins' Garden feels as relevant and vital as the morning news. Asheville-area playwright David Brendan Hopes examines our country’s values with ferocity and abandon, bringing new dimension to familiar icons such as Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt, news publisher William Randolph Hearst, and feminist/political activist Emma Goldman. The play examines an important moment in historical time, and, in doing so, asks very modern questions about the nature of government, rights, freedom, and even the idea of country itself. In the Assassins' Garden is smoldering historical look at an America riven by partisan politics, flirting with socialism, and galvanized by a swiftly rising feminist movement. Seemingly contemporary, this historical play looks at the chaotic and frenzied era of the assassination of William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States. IN THE ASSASSINS' GARDEN runs June 14th – 30th at The Magnetic Theatre, located at 375 Depot Street in the River Arts District. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $10 for students. All tickets are subject to a $3 ticketing fee. For more information, please visit www.themagnetictheatre.org.

In an age dominated by the daily shattering of norms, you deserve distraction, and were going to give it to you! The loons who brought you the wildly successful "Sex and How To Have It," "Food and How To Eat It," "Beer and How To Drink It," and "Money and How To Make It" return to the BeBe Theater in downtown Asheville the last two weekends of June for six performances only of their latest sketch comedy extravaganza, "Rules and How To Break Them"! Thats right, friends. After a brief two-year hiatus, the How-To Crew is back and better than everor, anyway, no worse for the wear. Crew veterans Glenn Reed (otherwise best known as Jimbo Bernstein, a LaZoom tour guide, and a host of the Home-Groan Pun Battle), comedy titan Scott Fisher ("All in the Timing," "Off the Rails," The Zoo Story), and song-and-dance sensation Katie Langwell (most recently seen in a dramatic role in "Silent Sky"), are joined by Emily New Val Spreng (an improv artist with the group What You Pay For), making her How-To debut. Yes, and the worlds of sketch and improv comedy collide in "Rules and How To Break Them." Which, if either, will survive? In this world premiere produced by The Sublime Theater, the How-To Crew refuses to be constrained by the rules of civil discourse as they take on party behavior, the rules of the road, social media, classroom rules, board game rules, dinner expectations, sex outside of marriage, the Ten Commandments, KonMarie-ing your friends, the necessity of calling siblings on their birthdays, and more! Aided and abetted by head writer Lisa Yoffee, choreographer Kristi DeVille, and producer/director Steven Samuels, the How-To Crew will act, dance, and sing its way far beyond the established rules of sketch comedy. According to Samuels, The How-To series was born of our desire to reconceive what sketch comedy can be by giving it a theme and continuity. Our previous efforts have been met with rave reviews and sold-out houses, and 'Rules and How To Break Them' may be our strongest and funniest production yet! The show plays Thursdays-Saturdays, June 20-29, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to this unforgettable theatrical experienceonly $15!are available at the BeBe box office an hour before each performance or online at rules.brownpapertickets.com or www.thesublimetheater.org. Due to limited seating, advance purchase is recommended.
