(Sept. 11, 2012) -- The UTSA Friends of Shakespeare and the Department of English will host Actors From the London Stage performing Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 19, 21 and 22 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus.

The touring ensemble of five British actors represent several prestigious companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, English Touring Theatre, Royal National Theatre and the Oxford Shakespeare Company.

Cast members include Nicola Alexis, Michael Palmer, Noel White, Ainka Wright and Henry Everett. The actors play multiple roles in a production that utilizes simple costumes and minimal scenery with an emphasis on the riches of Shakespeare's language.

Actors From the London Stage visit selected American universities each year to perform and to conduct classes and workshops. This is the company's 26th visit to UTSA and San Antonio. The residency is supported by the UTSA Friends of Shakespeare, Crittenden Shakespeare Endowment and a grant from the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.

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

Tickets are $18 general admission, $10 for students (with student ID) and are available online. All seats are reserved. Tickets also will be available at the door (cash or check).

For more information or student group bookings, call 210-458-6885 or email mailto:mark.bayer@utsa.edu.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
