04.JPG

It's Christmas 1183, and King Henry II is planning to announce his successor to the throne. The jockeying for the crown, though, is complex. Henry has three sons and wants his boy Prince John to take over. Henry's wife, Queen Eleanor, believes their son Prince Richard should be king. Add to this their third son Geoffrey who plots and schemes for his own advantages. Henry has had Eleanor imprisoned for the last ten years since her last failed civil war attempt and his since fallen in love with the young Alais - sister to the King of France - who is attending the Christmas Court to insist on her marriage to Richard (as was promised) or her dowry back. 

An intriguing and complex plot full of twists, deception and family drama "The Lion In Winter" is an engaging play that will leave audiences engrossed until the final moments.

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 3:00 PM. Performance dates are October 6 to October 22, 2017.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for students/seniors.
