It's an evening of mischief and merriment as Intrepid Shakespeare Company presents the original battle of the sexes, Much Ado About Nothing. This witty romantic comedy shows how love brings out both the best and worst in us. Fun-loving, confirmed bachelor Benedick returns from a victory at war only to find himself caught up in another battle: a war of wits and words with the acid-tongued, headstrong Beatrice. Though they've each sworn off romance, their "merry war" of clever insults reveals the growing attraction between them. Meanwhile, Benedick's fellow soldier Claudio is head over heels for Hero, the governor's daughter. They will soon be wed ... if the treacherous Don John doesn't ruin everything first. At once passionate, sexy and blindingly funny, Much Ado About Nothing is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written. Learn More

This was a wonderful production in every way. The acting, the directing, the costumes, scenery, lighting, sound effects & music - all were top notch. I especially enjoyed the fact that it was an MFA production and was so well-done. Professional, intensely creative, meaningful. Two young boys sitting in front of us were mesmerized the entire show. Bravo!
The Skin of Our Teeth
by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Sarah Rasmussen
The very underpinnings of American identity are challenged, as a typical family struggles to survive an iceberg, annihilation by coastal flooding, nuclear war and each other.
