Sigh no more! Please join the Undergraduate Theater Society for a magical evening outside in Sylvan Grove. Presenting Shakespeares belovéd Much Ado About Nothing, director Daphne Sage Gomez invites you to sit back and laugh at the trials and tribulations of love. Engaged in a battle of wits, Benedick and Beatrice are brought together through various fantastical schemes set up by their family and friends. The company tackles this timeless classic with a joyful and jesting spirit, while poking fun at the consequences of miscommunication. Featuring original compositions and a beautiful outdoor venue, this production strives to bring joy, laughter, and infectious love to everyone who sees it. Much Ado About Nothing performs May 22 to June 1, and the audience is encouraged to bring chairs and picnic blankets to Sylvan Grove for a truly immersive Shakespearean adventure.
