News   19-Member Cast Will Explore Shakespeare's Much Ado at the Workshop Theatre
 
Frog and Peach Theatre Co. will present William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing Oct. 22-Nov. 15 at the Workshop Theatre.

Performances will be Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Lynnea Benson will direct.

The show is described as such: "Set against a backdrop of sun-washed, bloodstained Sicily, Much Ado About Nothing opens with Don Pedro and his platoon of courtly soldiers returning from war. Shakespeare strikingly describes what modern medicine calls PTSD, particularly in the embodiment of Count Claudio. With a Masquerade Ball planned in celebration of the end of the war alongside surprises, betrayal, and non-stop hilarity, you'll wish Much Ado would never end!"

The cast of Much Ado About Nothing includes Amy Frances Quint, Lenny Ciotti, Marcus Watson, David Elyha, Ilaria Amadasi, Vivien Landau, JP Makowski, Alyssa Diamond, Matthew Velez, James Foster, Jr., John Lampe, Alec Barniskis, Liz Tancredi, David Personne, Paul Battiato, Steve Fogelman, Samuel Douglas Clark, Jamar Brathwaite and Vicki Kulkin.

Much Ado About Nothing will feature costume design by Nina Vartanian, set design by Ashley Cusack, lighting design by Dennis Parichy, music by Ted Zurkowski, movement by Tom Knutson and stage management by Ellie D’Eustachio, who will be assisted by Sara Parcesepe. Nannan Gu serves as design intern.
