Much Ado About Nothing

Why you should go

This Shakespeare play is notorious for being funny, witty, and heartfelt.


Thou must attend this play. Even if Shakespeare isn’t your cup of tea, this show has something for you. This version of the play is set in 2018, but retains the classic love story of Beatrice and Benedick and all the original drama, action, and terrible communication skills. The play features the graduating class of the BFA Acting program (so you know it’s gonna be good). More info.

  • When: Nov 8 - 24

  • Price: $11.50

  • Where: Frederic Wood Theatre
