St. Monica Academy Stages ‘Richard III’ at Lanterman

St. Monica Academy in Montrose will present Shakespeare’s “Richard III” at Lanterman Auditorium in La Cañada Flintridge on Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15.
Told in its original setting of the War of the Roses, St. Monica’s production boasts a complete medieval battle with knights in armor, bows and broad swords. Running time is 90 minutes plus intermission.
Playing Richard is an exciting challenge for Bobby Tierney, a senior from Altadena whose previous Shakespearean roles include the comedic Touchstone from “As You Like It” and Cicero from “Julius Caesar.”
“‘Richard III’ is a fast-paced, dramatic play that shows how charismatic people can influence us, for better or worse,” director Paula Grimm said.
St. Monica Academy, an independent, coeducational school for grades 1-12, seeks to form students in faith, reason and virtue through a classical education in the Roman Catholic tradition. Its high school, with 120 students in attendance, produces a yearly Shakespeare show.

First published in the March 9 print issue of the Outlook Valley Sun.
