Short Shakes “Much Ado About Nothing”
Rehearsals: September 29-November 12, 2013 (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday evenings)
Performs: November 9, 11, 12, 2013
Beatrice and Benedick are always fighting – but everyone else knows that they should be together! It takes the schemes of their friends to plant the seed of love, and a crisis to bring them closer together. This comedy has it all — fools, lovers, villains, family feuding, and a happy ending.
Short Shakes at Seattle Shakespeare Company is more than just putting on a play, it is an experience that fosters compassion, creates better listeners, promotes critical thinking, and develops courage. And it’s a whole lot of fun with new friends. Who knew a play could do all that?
You will audition, rehearse, and perform your own classic play. Seattle theatre professionals lead a seven-week process that culminates in three performances. All the while, you’ll make friends, learn about Shakespeare’s language, discover basic acting concepts and techniques, hone your comedy skills, and step into roles that may stretch you, but in a good way.
