    The Virgin queen Entertains her Fool

    American Players Theatre's Touchstone Theatre
    Thursday, August 29
     matinee

    Registration Deadline Friday, July 26

    Join us Thursday, August 29th, for the American Players Theatre (APT) world premiere play, The Virgin Queen Entertains Her Foolby Michael Hollinger and featuring Tracy Michelle Arnold, Jim DeVita, Josh Krause and Nancy Rodriguez.  

    Prepare for a wild, theatrical ride through the final hours of a waning Queen.  As her monarchy teeters, she defers her duties, seeking solace in her bawdy, irreverent Fool.  But there are others who may be more than they first appear.  Scheming players vie in a courtly game of incendiary secrets, ridiculous jests and the ever-current politics of power and privilege.  A witty, twisty thriller to keep you on the edge of your seat (and rolling in the aisles), be among the very first to see it for yourself. 

    Estimated Run Time: 2 hours      Contains adult themes & language.


    Seating:  The Virgin Queen Entertains Her Fool will be staged in APT's 201-seat indoor Touchstone Theatre, where every seat is a good one. It's about a 5-minute stroll from the parking lot, up a gentle slope (though there is a shuttle available if you prefer to ride).  The path leads through the prairie to a beautiful, modern, intimate, and climate-controlled facility.  Once inside, you'll find a gift shop, concession stand and restrooms--the same amenities as the Hill Theatre (but to slightly smaller scale). More information about this theater.

    Lunch:  You are asked to bring your own picnic lunch or to purchase your lunch from APT.  They have a selection of sandwiches and salads including sides and a brownie.  Order online at (https://americanplayers.org/206/event-tickets) or call the APT Box Office at 608-588-2361.  Please note, picnics must be ordered in advance by Wednesday, August 28, no later than 4:00 pm.  We will eat lunch at APT at the outdoor picnic tables.  Depending on the weather, we may choose the tables under the roofed shelters.

    Accessibility Policy: On the bus you must be able to climb steps to board and exit.  If you need assistance, we require that you bring a friend to give you a hand.

    Guest Policy: Members must register their guests.  Each PLATO member is entitled to bring one non-member guest per bus trip. (Members may bring more than one guest near the registration deadline date if seats are available.)  Check with trip organizer. Non-member guests pay an additional fee.  PLATO Membership is $60.00/year.
