Otterbein Theatre & Dance Takes on Shakespeare

Otterbein Theatre & Dance Takes on Shakespeare

The Otterbein University Department of Theatre and Dance will present Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 22, and 8 p.m. on Oct. 23, 24, 30 and 31 in the Campus Center Theatre, 100 W. Home St. Tickets cost $18. Call 614-823-1109 or visit www.otterbein.edu/drama.

Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio and nothing seems capable of keeping them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being in denial, Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, one of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most lovable pairs of lovers.

Tickets for Much Ado About Nothing are $18 each and can be reserved by calling the Otterbein University box office at (614) 823-1109 or purchased online at www.otterbein.edu/drama. The box office is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to performances. The box office is located in Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St.
