    Henry IV, Part I Staged Reading

    Justin Scalise as Prince Hal Austin Shakespeare invites you to a staged reading of what has been called Shakespeare's best History Play... Henry IV part I directed by Matt Davies Ballet Austin’s Austin Ventures Studio Theatre 501 W. 3rd St. (off San Antonio St.) Friday-Saturday, June 20-21, 8 pm AusTix tickets : $12/10, 474-8497 Starring: David Jarrott, Steve Shearer, Marc Pouhe', Lowell Bartholomee, Doug Taylor, Greg Holt, Aaron Alexander, Beth Burns, Molly McKee, Jill Swanson, David Boss, Erin Brobruk, Jenny Graven and Justin Scalise. For two evenings, audiences and actors will join in an imaginative rendition of this play filled with nobles, rebels and comic characters. Former radio personality, David Jarrott, brings the jolly, braggart fat man to life as the legendary Fallstaff. Beth Burns, acclaimed for her delightful romp in Much Ado about Nothing, returns as Mistress Quickly. Justin Scalise, new-comer to Austin by way of New Orleans, plays Prince Hal, transforming from party boy to hero over the course of the adventure. Award winning Austin actor, Steve Shearer, will play the title King Henry IV, and Marc Pouhe', recent winner of the Austin Crtics' Table award as Best Actor, portrays the volatile Hospur. The reading is directed by Matt Davies, most recently seen as Benedick in Austin Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. Mr. Davies is a PHD literature student at the University of Texas, who has decades of experience as an actor on the London stage. From the Director: "Henry IV yokes together martial, machiavellian, and madcap worlds, as opposing lords of majesty and misrule contend for control of a play that is both a critique and a celebration of a divided Britain.
