(Feb. 8, 2005)--For the true romantics who want to start Valentine's Day a few days early, UTSA presents Actors from the London Stage performing "Shakespeare and Love," a reading of Shakespeare's love poem, "Venus and Adonis," and a selection of sonnets at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 9 in the University Center Retama Auditorium (2.02.02), 1604 Campus. Tickets are $5, $3 for students with I.D.

Actors from the London Stage, housed at the University of Notre Dame, is an educational theatrical program that brings a troupe of five classically trained actors from major English theaters to college campuses for weeklong residencies. Begun in 1975 by Professor Homer Swander of the University of California, Santa Barbara and British actor Patrick Stewart, AFTLS's unique program of performance and education has visited 150 campuses.

The events are sponsored by the UTSA Department of English, Classics and Philosophy, Friends of Shakespeare and Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society.
