September 18, 7:30 p.m.—Shakespeare in the Park

Shakespeare in the Park! Much Ado About Nothing
Directed by Kyler Taustin, Brown Box Theatre Project

ST. MICHAELS: NEW DATE! Saturday, September 18, 2021
Muskrat Park | 207 Willow Green Street

Free Outdoor Shakespeare returns! Performance begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Bringing a chair or blanket is recommended.

Much Ado About Nothing
“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.”
Upon their return from war, a group of soldiers are reminded that life and love are not so black and white. Trickery, jealousy, deceit, and masquerade each play a role in challenging Benedict and Beatrice’s scorn for love (and each other) as well as the seemingly unassailable love of Claudio and Hero. Through witty banter and dastardly deception, Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, Much Ado About Nothing debates the preconceived notion of how to love and the value of trust.

This program is funded in part by the Town of St. Michaels, the Maryland State Arts Council and the Talbot County Arts Council.
