(Sept. 11, 2013) -- The UTSA Friends of Shakespeare and the Department of English will host Actors From the London Stage (AFTLS) for a presentation of Shakespeare's "Othello" at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 25, 27 and 28 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 Oxford Shakespeare Company.

Cast members include Jude Akuwudike, Richard Neale, Jan Shepherd, Jack Whitam and Alinka Wright. 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 American universities each year to perform and conduct classes and workshops. This is the company's 25th visit to UTSA. The residency is supported by The 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 jointly based in London and at the University of Notre Dame. It combines the talents of professional actors on stage with the 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 "Othello" go on sale Sept. 19 and are $18 for general admission and $10 for students with a student ID. They are available at the information desk in the University Center on the UTSA Main Campus and can be purchased by cash or check. Tickets also will be available at the door. All seats are reserved.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
