This month, Patrick Henry College's theatre club Eden Troupe present's William Shakespeare's classic "The Winter's Tale," a story with romance, humor, and heart.

 22135678_1833044610061302_5350842767930106078_o (1).jpgYou can see the unfolding drama of jealous King Leontes and patient Queen Hermione from November 16 to 19 at in the College's Town Hall auditorium. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances and at 2 p.m. for the Sunday matinee. Standard tickets cost $10. Tickets are $8 with the presentation of a valid student or military ID, and $6 for children under 12.

Group rates can be arranged in advance by contacting emgannage@gmail.com, with the standard group rate as $8 per person for groups over ten.

We don't want to give away too much of the plot, but let's just say one of the main themes of the play is that things are not always as they seem!

Eden Troupe, PHC’s drama club, seeks to glorify God through the production of plays that communicate truth and beauty. 

The student-directed group produces one or more theatrical productions each semester, which have included As You Like It and Our Town.
