Roxy Regional Theatre to Present MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, 3/7-15
The eternal battle of the sexes takes a witty and suspenseful turn in the Roxy Regional Theatre's 29th annual Shakespeare offering, the timeless comedy MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, March 7 - 15. Taylor Galvin and Brandon Beach star as reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick, whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever. Meanwhile, the two young lovers Claudio and Hero, played by Michael Spaziani and Michelle Foletta, are to be married imminently but for the devious scheming of a resentful prince looking to thwart the nuptials. A masquerade ball provides the setting for a case of mistaken identity, reminding us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our neverending search for perfect love. This witty romantic comedy also features Ted Jones as Don Pedro, Kevin Buchanan as Leonato, Eli Jolley as Don John, Leslie Greene as Conrade and various ladies-in-waiting, Jake Jessup as Borachio, Ashton Crosby as Dogberry and Ted Kitterman as Verges. In a script edited by Jim Ryan and directed by John McDonald, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING will be presented in modern dress. This production is made possible in part through the generous support of The City of Clarksville. Additional funding support has been provided by Melissa A. Schaffner.
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING plays at 8pm on March 7, 8, 14 and 15, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday, March 15. All tickets are $10 and may be purchased online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, by phone at (931)645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9am to 2pm, Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to curtain).
