Opening Tonight! Much Ado About Nothing
Thursday, May 18, 2023
Oddfellows Playhouse Teen Repertory Company presents Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing May 18 - 27. All performances will be held at Oddfellows Playhouse, 128 Washington Street, Middletown.
Much Ado About Nothing, written in 1599, is one of Shakespeare’s most popular and accessible comedies. The play, which in this production is done in an early 1920’s vaudeville style, interweaves two eccentric love stories with music, dance, clowns, villains, princes and, of course, a disaster narrowly averted.
The play, which features a cast of 19 performers ages 14 - 20, is directed by Oddfellows Artistic Director Dic Wheeler, with original choreography by Marcella Trowbridge.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for kids and students. May 18 is a "pay-what-you-can" preview.
