    Fifty and Better FABulous Summer Lecture Series

    Staging Shakespeare in the 21st Century: Is the work still relevant?

     

    Michael J. Arndt, artistic director for Kingsmen Shakespeare Company (KSC), will discuss the founding and development of the company and the challenge of staging a professional theatre production within a three-week production schedule. He will also discuss As You Like It and Macbeth, the two productions scheduled to be performed during summer 2022.

    Arndt is chair of the Theatre Arts and Dance Department at Cal Lutheran. As a founding member of KSC, he directed 18 productions for the company, the most recent:  Richard II (2019), Henry V (2016) and Measure for Measure (2015). He continues to develop and produce his play, Under Fire: Stories of Combat Veterans Across Generations and is co-writing a book about the arts as a healing force for combat veterans.

    Fifty and Better was designed to offer university-level courses and lectures (no tests, no homework) taught by experts in the field, and to host social engagement activities for people age 50 and older. All two-hour lectures in the FABulous Summer Lecture Series are open to all ages.
