Much Ado About Nothing

Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2 and 3 at 7:30 p.m.
Dec. 2, 3 at 2:00 p.m., Bartlett Theatre

Written during the middle (and height) of Shakespeare’s career, Much Ado About Nothing is comically just that: a large commotion over a simple misconception. The plot follows a variety of characters, including the playfully fierce rivalry between young Beatrice and Benedick as well as the budding love between romantics Claudio and Hero. In an amusing and fast-paced exchange of increasingly inaccurate information, Much Ado allows audiences to sit back and laugh.

Feb. 25 at 2:00 p.m.; Bartlett Theatre

Originally staged in 1983, Daisy Pulls It Off takes the “English schoolgirl story” concept popular in the first half of the 20th Century and turns it on its head. Daisy Pulls It Off takes the usual themes, gives them to one energetic Daisy Meredith, and then lets her loose. Daisy Pulls It Off offers a spirited account of the adventures and lessons the girls learn both inside and out of Grangewood School For Girls.
