Description
Written by William Shakespeare in about 1599
Directed by GVSU alumna Katherine Mayberry

Full of lovers and villains and bumbling heroes, Much Ado About Nothing will give everybody something to cheer about.

This production takes place just as World War I is ending, and soldiers returning home from the reality of war are caught up in the merry war of wits between the sexes. The skirmishes in this battle may be more playful, but they may also be more dangerous than anyone expects. The production will feature guest Actors Equity Association actor Christopher Seiler in the role of Dogberry.

Sign language interpretation available at October 3 evening performance.
Performances at 7:30 p.m. September 27-28 and October 3-5.
Matinee performances at 2 p.m. September 29 and October 5-6.

Pre-show discussions by Production Dramaturg Jo Miller, Grand Valley professor of English, on
September 28 and October 4 at 6:45p.m., preceding the evening performances.
