Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing
By William Shakespeare
The war has ended and Don Pedro has come to Messina to visit his good friend Don Leonato, bringing two of his best friends with him - Benedick and Claudio. Claudio falls in love with Leonato’s daughter Hero and a marriage is agreed upon, while Benedick and Beatrice renew their hatred for one another through their battles of wit. In the days leading up to the ceremony, Don Pedro, with the help of the others, attempts to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to trick the two into falling in love. A series of comic and tragic events may continue to keep the two couples from truly finding happiness...will love prevail?
A Village Fable, a musical drama
By James Still • Music by Michael Keck
Adapted from the book In the Suicide Mountains by John Gardner
An incredible journey of humor, heart and heroes, A Village Fable is a musical fable about three souls who are shunned for being different. These three stories weave in and out of each other, intertwining and finally overlapping when each character is pushed to the brink by pressures to conform to the world around them.
