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

The talent was good, but the show itself -- the music, the lyrics, the dialogue -- were pedestrian and dull. Nothing was memorable. I left at intermission, feeling bad because the cast members were giving their all... The show itself (libretto) is a DUD.
A true musical theatre phenomenon, “Jekyll & Hyde” attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run.
An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, “Jekyll & Hyde” is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
“Jekyll & Hyde” is pure pulse-pounding theatre, with that same macabre combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics as “Sweeney Todd” and “The Phantom Of The Opera,” and a lush, romantic pop score that includes the hit songs “This Is The Moment” and “Someone Like You.” The show features a trio of star-making roles in Dr. Jekyll, his sympathetic fiancee Emma and Lucy, the woman he rescues from a life of sin who later succumbs to the uncontrolled passions of Mr. Hyde.
The cast includes both professional guest actors and young local talent.
All patrons in attendance at the Opening Night show are invited to the post-show reception with free snacks and champagne.
