Subject:   King John, Henry VI 1-3, Antony & Cleopatra and more

The 2008-09 Season of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company will include ten 
Shakespeare plays, including a chance to view the rarely performed works King 
John Henry VI (all three parts, including all three performed in a single 
weekend), Antony & Cleopatra, and others.

Here's the season.

August and September -- a repertory of The Compete Works of William Shakespeare 
(abridged), Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night, and King John

October -- Antony and Cleopatra
November -- Henry VI, Parts 1, 2, and 3
December -- A Christmas Carol
January 2009 -- Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus
February -- Romeo and Juliet
March -- The Canterbury Tales
April -- Hamlet
May -- The Tempest
June -- Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music (rights pending)

The Atlanta Shakespeare Company performs at the New American Shakespeare Tavern, 
located at 299 Peachtree Street in Atlanta, and can be contacted at 
_www.shakespearetavern.com_ (http://www.shakespearetavern.com).

The Atlanta Shakespeare Company produces professional productions of plays in 
the manner (as far as we can know) that the author intended. That is, there is 
no time travel (the Henry plays will not take place in Baghdad, Kosovo, or any 
place other than where they are set), and the Shakespeare texts are generally 
taken from the First Folio (when available, of course).

The remainder of the 2007-08 season includes Much Ado About Nothing (June 6- 
July 6, 2008), and A Midsummer Night's Dream (July 10 - August 13, 2008).

Performance dates, ticket prices, information about the Company, and other items 
are available on the website.
