(Oct. 12, 2010)--The UTSA Friends of Shakespeare and the Department of English will host a return of Actors From the London Stage. The touring ensemble of five British actors will perform Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 13, 15, and 16 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus.

The actors from such prestigious companies as the Royal National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Bristol Old Vic Theatre and Dublin's Abbey Theatre are Nicola Alexis, Devon Black, Matthew Douglas, Paul O'Mahony and Julian Rivett. The performers play multiple roles in a production that utilizes simple costumes and minimal scenery with an emphasis on the richness of Shakespeare's language.

The Actors From the London Stage troupe visit selected American universities each year to perform and to conduct classes and workshops. This is the company's 24th visit to UTSA and San Antonio. The residency is supported by UTSA Friends of Shakespeare, the Crittenden Shakespeare Endowment, and a grant from the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.

Actors From the London Stage is an international touring theater organization based in London and at the University of Notre Dame. It combines the superb talents of professional actors on stage with rare opportunities for students to work with them in the classroom. Covering a vast range of topics, AFTLS residencies have been bringing Shakespeare to life at UTSA since 1988.

Tickets for performances of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" are $18 for general admission, $10 for students with ID, and are available at the UTSA Information Desk in the University Center on the Main Campus (cash or check). Tickets also will be available at the door (cash or check). All seats are reserved.
