CSC's 2014 Apprentice Program
Much Ado About Nothing
Friday, August 8 at 7:30 p.m.
The Carling-Sorenson Theatre, Babson College**
Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's 2014 Apprentice Company consists of 24 pre-professional actors from across the country studying in residence at Wellesley, MA. Join them for this summer's showcase production of William Shakespeare's beloved romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing. Directed by Clay Hopper, Much Ado follows the triumphs and struggles along the road to love. Beatrice and Benedict, two self-proclaimed singles "too wise to woo" are tricked into courtship by their mischief making friends despite their own better judgments and sharp-witted tongues. Meanwhile, a jealous plot of mistaken idenity threatens to pull apart the love-struck Hero and Claudio. A whirlwind of potential heartache and great humor ensues as the residents of Messina rally around the young lovers to put all the pieces back together.
Performance made possible by Babson College.
