The University of Akron Wayne College announces the return of the American Shakespeare Center for a one night only performance Friday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. The College is located at 1901 Smucker Rd. in Orrville.
The ASC will perform The Life of King Henry the Fifth as part of its 2015/16 Dangerous Dreams Tour. The finale to Shakespeare’s great history plays, Henry V is the story of England’s hero king and the greatest upset in European military history.
Based in Staunton, Va. at the Blackfriar’s Playhouse, the ASC is a professional performing troupe that follows the principles of basic Renaissance theatrical productions, giving theater-goers an authentic Elizabethan experience with the use of universal lighting, doubling, gender, costuming and music. This is the 17th year the ASC has performed at Wayne College.
The troupe will also perform a matinee of Henry V earlier in the day for area high school students. Following the play, some of the students will participate in actor-led workshops that connect to Common Care standards including writing, history, social studies, reading, literature, language, speaking and listening. Workshop topics include staging, rhetoric, performance choices, doubling and, new this year, costuming.
“These Shakespeare performances fit right in with the emphasis we place on experiential learning at The University of Akron Wayne College,” says former interim dean, Neil Sapienza. “We embrace an interdisciplinary approach to learning and strive to provide our students with diverse opportunities to experience the sciences, the arts, the professions, and the humanities. We are delighted to bring the ASC back to Wayne College and look forward to enjoying this theatrical experience with our students, faculty and staff, and members of the community.”
Tickets go on sale Sept. 21. Prices are $15 for adults and $10 for students. General seating is available online at http://wayne.uakron.edu/shakespeare/festival.dot. Reserved seating is available by calling 330-684-8973 or in person at the cashier’s window of the Main Classroom Building Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm. If still available, purchases can also be made at the door one hour before the show.

In order to perpetuate a sense of ownership in shaping the character of our youth, the Heartland Character Education Committee, part of the Heartland Education Community, implements a Character Education program in the Orrville City Schools. This annual program kicks-off each school year with Character Education Week, Sept 18-25, 2015.
“We have such a unique situation in Orrville when it comes to character education,” said Beverly Waseman, Orrville Elementary School principal and chairperson of the Heartland Character Education Committee. “The Heartland Education Community, Inc. and the schools work together to make character a high priority in the schools and in the community.”
This year, the theme for Character Education Week is "Connecting Orrville with Good Character." The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce supports this initiative and encourages the Orrville Area business community to model good character by focusing on a different character trait each month.
