Shakespeare Festival St. Louis will be producing three plays in two alternating main stage shows -- Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2 and Henry V -- at Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park.  Opening weekends for each show are May 17 for Henry IV, and May 24 for Henry V.  The shows will then rotate nightly EXCEPT TUESDAYS.  Two double-feature Saturdays (June 7, 14) will allow audiences to see both shows back-to-back.  This will mark the Festival’s 14th season of producing free performances in an outdoor setting and the first time audiences will be invited to experience more than one of Shakespeare’s works in repertory.   Free nightly backstage tours and post-show Talkbacks will also be available.  As in previous years, the pre-show Festival activities will include a nightly Green Show at 6:30 p.m. The pre-show will include a 20-minute adaptation of “Henry IV & V,” which will introduce the characters and plot to children of all ages; musicians, dancers, singers, jugglers; and a craft table for kids.  Admission is free.  Open lawn seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets or low-back chairs. Rental chairs are available for $10 and $7 each. For more information, please visit or call 314/531-9800.
