River City Repertory Theatre, Shreveport/Bossier’s professional theatre company, will open its fifth season with The Lion In Winter.

It opens Sept 22 at Riverview Theater and plays through Sept 26, says Patric McWilliams.

Keenly self-aware and motivated as much by spite as by any sense of duty, Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine maneuver against each other to position one of their three sons next in line for the throne. The Tony Award-winning play was the basis for the 1968 Oscar-winning film starring Katherine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole.

Anne Lockhart will appear as Eleanor with BenTyler as Henry. Lockhart was seen as Lt. Sheba on the ABC series, Battlestar Galactica and has made frequent appearances on Law and Order, NCIS and JAG.

Tyler is an actor from Phoenix and was seen in River City Rep’s premiere production The Little Foxes.

Also appearing will be Jonathan McVay, Logan Sledge, Luke Eddy, Jamie Norwood and Haley Young.

Patric McWilliams will direct and design the sets and costumes. Light Design is by David Gipson. Sound and Music Design is by Kermit Poling. Chelsea Hockaday is the Production Stage Manager.
