About the Production
Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s more popular comedies. A story of romantic love with different journeys to a happy ending. This production will be a madcap and energetic full comedic take on this beloved play. Actors will perform with live music in an outdoor setting that makes Shakespeare come to life for the audience.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to perform the poetry of Shakespeare. Students will get the opportunity to play larger-than-life characters and take part in finding how to make Shakespeare relevant and fun for audiences. No Shakespeare or acting experience necessary.
