Next week, the Stolen Shakespeare Guild opens its 2010 season with Much Ado About Nothing on Friday, February 12, 2010 at 8 PM. Directed by Jason Morgan, the play will perform in the Sanders Theatre at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center and run through February 21st. One of Shakespeare’s finest comedies performed by a wonderful cast, it is sure to charm audiences.
A pair of lovers, Claudio and Hero, are due to be married in a week. To pass the time before their wedding day, they conspire with Don Pedro, the prince of Aragon, to trick their friends, Beatrice and Benedick, into confessing their love for one another. The prince’s illegitimate brother, Don John, however, jealous of both Don Pedro’s power and his affection for Claudio, plans to destroy the coming wedding.
I have the pleasure of sharing the stage with my wife, Arlette Morgan, who will be Beatrice to my Benedick. I invite all who read this blog to come out and join us. Think of it as spending an evening in our home. Only, you know, with culture.
