Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is delighted to announce the cast of The Lion In Winter, written by James Goldman and directed by Kelli McMellon.
Opening January 23rd, The Lion in Winter is comedic in tone and dramatic in action. The play tells the story of the Plantagenet family who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II.  Let out only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a
kingdom, as well as King Henry’s paramour during the Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, “every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.
Starring in this production are Mark Johnson (Henry), Joni Sauer-Folger (Eleanor), Chris Chiola (Richard), Sid Givens (Geoffrey), Riley Peterson (John), Liz Tosch (Alais), Steele Fleisher (King Philip of France)
