"A Man for All Seasons" to play at BYU March 7-22

Brigham Young University’s Department of Theatre and Media Arts will present the Tony Award-winning “A Man for All Seasons” Friday, March 7, through Saturday, March 22, in the Margetts Theatre at 7:30 p.m. with 2 p.m. Saturday matinees.

Tickets are $14, with $6 off weeknights and $5 off weekends for BYU students and those with student ID; senior citizens and BYU alumni will receive $2 off. Saturday matinees are $7-8. For tickets, visit the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-2981 or byuarts.com/tickets.

“A Man for All Seasons,” by Robert Bolt and directed by David Morgan, demonstrates how conscience and corruption collide in the powerful historical portrait of Sir Thomas More — counselor to King Henry VIII and Lord Chancellor of England. More resists entreaties to condone the king’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon, marriage to Anne Boleyn and separation from the Catholic Church in Rome. Though he is ultimately condemned for his silence, his unwavering dedication to principle makes him a true “man for all seasons” and the centerpiece of this compelling drama about the price of morality.

The cast includes Ben Hopkin as Thomas More, Stephanie Breinholt as Alice More, Cameron Bench as Cardinal Wolsey, Henry VIII and others, Joseph Skousen as Richard Rich, Alex Trop as the Duke of Norfolk, Mallory Gee as Margaret More, Jacob Shamy as Thomas Cromwell, James Luciano as Signore Chapuys, Morgan Gunter as Chapuy’s Attendant, David Jon Banks as William Roper, James Lyon as Thomas Cramner and Jenna Hawkins as Woman.

The design and technical crew includes Crysta Powell, production stage manager; Eric Fielding, scenic designer; Amy Veronin and Angela Asay, costume designers; Graham Whipple, lighting designer; Doug Olsen, sound designer; Marissa Pack, makeup and hair designer; James Lyon, properties designer; Travis Coyne, technical director; Amy Castro, assistant director; Kirsten King and Mandee Wilcox, assistant stage managers; Lauren Chung-Hoon and Sarah Stewart, assistant costume designers; Valeri Day, assistant makeup designer; Brooklynne Bell and Sarah Stewart, dressers; Mckenzie Ottley, light board operator and Adam White, dramaturge.
