The State Fair Community College Theatre Arts program will present a modern language adaptation of William Shakespeare’s, “Henry V” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 5-7 and 2 p.m. Oct. 8 in the Stauffacher Theatre on the Sedalia campus.

A dinner theatre will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 7. The play is directed by Tim Wells, SFCC Theatre Instructor & Technical Director. This production restricts children ages 5 and younger from attending the performances.

The play takes place in tumultuous fifteenth-century England, newly crowned King Henry V grapples with a restless nation scarred by brutal civil wars. Seeking the respect of his people, he must overcome his wild past. His invasion of France strains his relationships, leading to heart-wrenching choices for those close to him. The epic Battle of Agincourt, where the outnumbered English triumph against the French, transforms the fate of nations. Henry's poignant night among his soldiers brings clarity, emphasizing the weight of his royal duties. In an unexpected turn, English victory compels the proud French to surrender. The ensuing peace negotiations, lead to Henry's marriage to the French king's daughter, uniting the kingdoms under their son's rule.
