Much Ado About Will
by Obert Johanson
Much Ado About Will is “A celebration of the words of Shakespeare. This charming entertainment demonstrates the amazing versatility of Shakespeare. ‘Neither age can whither him nor custom stale his infinite variety.’ The show is bookended by the hysterical antics of the rustics from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with a delightful journey through mistaken identity, murder, love and war between. The company of actors presents a dazzling display of comedy and pathos with some of Shakespeare’s most famous characters (Romeo, Juliet, Hamlet, Puck, Cleopatra, Portia, Bottom, Richard III, Henry V, etc.) as well as some of his less-seen characters, such as the infant princess Elizabeth, the three witches, and many others. This clever tour de force is a wonderful way to introduce audiences to the marvelous world of William Shakespeare and is a full-course meal for Shakespearean veterans.” (Dramatic Publishing)

“We love this show because of its versatility. It gives both the actors and audience the chance to explore Shakespeare in “small doses” and offers a lot of variety. We like to refer to it as “Shakespeare’s greatest hits!” One especially fun aspect of this performance is that we are creating a Renaissance Fair atmosphere before the show, between scenes, and at intermission. We have also encouraged the participants to really take ownership of their scenes – choosing the eras, costuming, and blocking for each.” (Christine Connell and Kasey Gallagher, co-directors)
