The Kentucky Wesleyan College Theatre Program will present Much Ado About Nothing, a Shakespeare experience set in the whimsical western world, with four performances this month. The 2-hour version of the classic play will be in the reverse round, and the audience will be in the middle on swivel chairs to follow the action that surrounds them.
Shows are set for Sept. 22, 23, 24 at 7 p.m. and Sept. 25 at 2 p.m.
KWC’s Theatre Program describes the play as follows:
“Much Ado About Nothing is Shakepeare’s best romantic comedy, and Beatrice and Bennedick have a history. Every time they meet, they seem to compete in who can insult the other the most. Young Claudio and Hero have eyes for each other, but the evil Don John has plans to ruin everything. Leonata owns a saloon, and Sheriff Dogberry keeps the peace in a unique, dim-witted way.”
KWC Director of Theatre Nate Gross said the number one goal is to make Shakepeare’s story easy to understand.
Seating is limited, and tickets are available here.
