Weekend Update is back from the dead, and KCST’s spring season is on its feet and running. Here’s what’s gone down and what’s to come:

WHAT’S HAPPENED:

Our spring show The Tempest held auditions and was cast.  Mark your calendar for May 1, 2, and 3 …

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

This week has been the biggest of the semester for KCST.  Here’s what’s gone down and what’s to come:

WHAT’S HAPPENED:

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) had its run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, doing three fast-paced, high-energy, and sold out shows.  A big thank you to everyone who came to the show!

Henry IV Part 2 had a bar night fundraiser on Thursday as well.  Thanks to all who stopped by to support!

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

H4P2 is having a Halloween candy gram sale this Thursday (Halloween) (duh) from 11 AM - 2 PM.  For more details, follow the Facebook event (https://www.facebook.com/events/559654240772087/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular), but you already know it involves KCST and candy so it’s got to be good.

And be sure to stay tuned for ticket information regarding H4P2!

Have a great week (happy fall break!), and may the Bard be with you.

As the weekend draws to a close, KCST steps into its first tech week of the season.  Here’s what’s gone down and what’s to come.

WHAT’S HAPPENED:

Rehearsal for both shows has amped up, especially for TCWoWS(A) as it enters its final week.  More on that below.

This weekend was Parents’ Weekend, in which several relatives of KCSTers came and sat in on Sunday Rehearsal.  Meaning we saw some quality middle-ager Power Wimples.  Thanks to everyone who came by!

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) will run this weekend: Thursday 10/24 at 8 PM, Friday 10/25 at 11:59 PM, and Saturday 10/26 at 8 PM, in the Lerner black box.  Tickets have technically sold out, but those without tickets who show up early can get on the wait list (and will likely get in, based on past shows).  Come! It’s worth it! And free!

Several photos from the semester so far can now be found on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/kingscrownshakespearetroupe).  Tag yo’ selves.

GIFs to come once technology starts being cooperative for a change …
Have a great week, and may the Bard be with you!

Once again, a new week dawns for KCST.  Here’s what’s gone down and what’s to come:

WHAT’S HAPPENED:

Tickets are now on “sale” for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).  The shows will be Thursday the 24th (8 PM), Friday the 25th (11:59 PM), and Saturday the 26th (8 PM).  Tickets are FREE (hence the “sale”) so be sure to reserve yours here: http://artsinitiative.columbia.edu/events/complete-works-william-shakespeare-abridged

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

Rehearsal for both shows continues this week.  More pictures/videos/GIFs on the way.

Have a great week (do well on midterms! get sleep!), and may the Bard be with you!

It’s the start of a new week here at KCST. Here’s what’s gone down and what’s to come:

WHAT’S HAPPENED:

Both of this past week’s bake sales raised lots of funds for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and Henry IV Part 2.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered and everyone who bought our treats!

The annual CUPAL Color Wars happened last Friday.  Members of performing arts groups on campus duked it out in activities such as Musical Chairs, Freeze Dance, and (the one and only) Chubby Bunny.  Interesting fact about this year’s Color Wars: WE WON!!! KCST has earned not only bragging rights for the next year, but a Troupe-wide pizza party (because we kick it old-school).  To all who came and competed: Well done.

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

Rehearsal for both shows continues this week.  Look out for pictures from Color Wars as well as (dare I say it?) KCST GIFs.

Have a great week, and may the Bard be with you!

Things are heating up for KCST as our first month of activity draws to a close. Here’s what’s gone down and what’s to come:

WHAT’S HAPPENED:

Rehearsal for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and Henry IV Part 2 has been moving along rather nicely.

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

Both shows are selling delicious baked goods this week - Henry IV Part 2 on Wednesday Oct. 2nd, and TCWOWS(A) on Thursday Oct. 3rd.  Both bake sales will be on the Sundial from 11 AM - 4 PM.

Additionally, the annual CUPAL Color Wars (in which performing arts groups on campus will compete for awesomeness in a series of games) will be this Friday Oct. 4th in the Roone Arledge Auditorium.  All current KCST-ers are invited to compete for the glory of our noble Troupe.  Wear purple.  And ermine, if you’ve got it.

Have a great week, and may the Bard be with you!

Today marks the death in 1592 of author Robert Greene, who allegedly once referred to Shakespeare as a second-rate playwright and an “upstart crow”.  So don’t mess with the Bard, or you’ll die … eventually.

King Henry IV and His Infamous Death Prediction
In the fifteenth century a psychic fortune-teller predicted that King Henry IV of England would die in Jerusalem. Silly psychic, King Henry never went on a crusade to the Holy Land. 
However, many years later whilst visiting Westminster Abbey in London Henry collapsed. He was taken to the abbot’s house and presumably died of a stroke.
The name of the room in which the King passed away, the Jerusalem Chamber. 
 Another odd note on Henry IV is that he is not buried at Westminster Abbey, which is the usual final resting spot for English Monarchs. He is in Canterbury Cathedral. No other English kings are buried there.
