Christina Pumariega plays Anne Boleyn, and Gregory Wooddell as Henry VIII, in Chicago Shakespeare Theater's production of Henry VIII, staged by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, in CST's Courtyard Theater April 30 to June 16.
Kevin Miller, executive director of the Windhover Center for the Arts, along with Valerie Graczyk of Someday Travel, will be travel hosts on a day-trip to see Henry VIII at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater on Navy Pier Thursday, May 16.
"The success of the first art trip to Italy last fall; and the day trip to see the opera La Boheme at the Lyric Opera in Chicago in March have created a demand for this event from our members," Miller said.
Chicago is the home for Shakespeare and this spectacular play offers the discovering of Shakespeare's unparalleled insight into our collective human condition. See England's most opulent king - notorious for his habit of wedding and beheading - Anne Boleyn rises to power, Queen Katherine ousted from her throne, and the political exploits of a king's reign laid bare.
The play begins at 1 pm. The cost, $136, includes transportation to and from Chicago, seating and gratuity. Lunch is on your own. All travelers must be members of the Windhover Center.
Tickets are limited. To reserve your ticket, contact Someday Travel at 539-0085; or firstname.lastname@example.org. To become a member of the Windhover Center, call 921-5410 or click windhovercenter.org.
