Buddy up to the Bard this weekend when the Royal Shakespeare Company brings its "First Encounters with Shakespeare" tour to the Lincoln Theatre, thanks to its partnership with The Ohio State University.

The world-famous RSC's production of The Famous Victories of Henry V takes place Saturday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. and the show is designed especially for family audiences. Basically it distills the famous prince from his bad-boy beginnings to the throne of England, but in a way that makes sense to kids, ages 8 and older.

Tickets are $11.50 and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster. For more information about the show, go to
