Murray State plans city-wide celebration of Shakespeare in March

Staff report

William Shakespeare's works of literature will be celebrated in Murray this spring. Events are planned citywide for this year's festival.

The departments of English, philosophy, and theatre in Murray State's College of Humanities and Fine Arts are hosting the Murray Shakespeare Festival. The festival will take place March 10-14.

"I am looking forward to seeing perennial favorite Rick Blunt, an actor with the American Shakespeare Center (ASC) who has come to Murray for the last six years, in two of Shakespeare's most engaging dramas - 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' and 'Henry IV Part 1,' as well as watching him perform the villainous Iago in the tragedy 'Othello,'" said Rusty Jones, festival chairman of the Murray Shakespeare Festival.

Performances by the ASC will be "Henry IV Part 1" at 7 p.m. on March 10,  "Othello" at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on March 11 and again at 10 a.m. on March 12, and final performances of "Henry IV Part 1" at 10 a.m. and the "Merry Wives of Windsor" at 7 p.m. on March 14.  All performances will be in MSU's Lovett Auditorium.

MSU's Cinema International program will feature "O", a modern movie adaptation of "Othello," as its showing March 6-8 in the Curris Center Theater at 7:30 p.m. daily. Admission is free.

All events in the Murray Shakespeare Festival are free except for the play performances by the actors of the American Shakespeare Center. Tickets for those are $7 for MSU students, faculty and staff, and $12 for the general public.
