Event description

Description

Pigeon Creek brings Shakespeare's famous history play to the Rose. King Henry V, who has recently ascended to the throne, attempts to defend the honor of his kingdom by defending his crown against the French at the famous battles of Harfleur and Agincourt. The play makes reference to the architecture of the Globe theatre, where it would have originally been performed. Pigeon Creek remounts its production of a script adaptation by actor Paul Riopelle, who also plays the title role.

About the Rose

In 2010, Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp completed construction on The Rose, a replica Elizabethan Theater. The Rose, named for one of London's first theaters of the Elizabethan period (circa 1587), is a synthesis of various popular 16th century English theaters. Its design is based upon surviving sketches and documents from that period. Blue Lake's Rose is one of only a handful of Elizabethan replicas around the world. At approximately 1/2 the size of Shakespeare's Globe Theater in London, The Rose has a traditional thrust stage, a Juliet balcony, seating for approximately 600 in two galleries, plus the yard in front of the stage that can hold up to 150 groundlings. The theater is completely authentic with no electricity or indoor plumbing, save an emergency sprinkler system.

The Rose is used primarily for the instruction of middle school and high school level campers throughout the summer. Pigeon Creek's open to the public performances offer West Michigan audiences the very rare opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s plays performed in the theatre architecture from the Bard’s own time period.
