Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present Much Ado About Nothing on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. Much Ado About Nothing, written by William Shakespeare and directed by Jeffrey Mason, is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.
It’s May 2016 in Nevada City, and Beatrice and Benedick carry on the wittiest, most entertaining courtship in history while the villainous Don John conspires to wreck the wedding of Hero and Claudio and the bungling Dogberry struggles to bring order tot he community. Celebrate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s life with this special Theatre By the Book reading of one of his most enjoyable comedies. It’s a fast, furious, and fun evening, featuring a cast of fifteen local actors.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are a $10 suggested donation, and are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or at the door.
