Chappelear Drama Center Studio Theatre (limited seating!)
By Hermann Gressieker, translated and adapted by George White
Directed by Elane Denny-Todd
Henry VIII served as king from 1509 until his death in 1547. In addition to six marriages, he is remembered for his effort to have his first marriage annulled and for the English Reformation (separating the Church of England from papal authority) when the annulment was denied.
This riveting real-life royal drama details the legacy of King Henry VIII, his numerous wives, and is filled with romance, rebellion, back-stabbing intrigue, scandal and betrayal.
More than 40 Ohio Wesleyan students are participating in the production of “Royal Gambit.” The cast stars senior Daniel Haygood as Henry and features Emma Antal, Nyjah Cephas, Kacie Iuvara, Rose Jonesco, Anna McReynolds, and Doris Ottman as his wives.
Scenic design is by Otterbein University professor Rob Johnson. Ohio Wesleyan senior Adriana Rodriguez is serving as stage manager.
Tickets: $5-students/seniors, and $10-general. (cash or check only!)
Admission is free for Ohio Wesleyan students with a valid ID.
Faculty/Staff will also be free for this production.
