Much Ado About Nothing

Actors' Shakespeare Project

APRIL 11 - MAY 6, 2018


Actors' Shakespeare Project returns at the Multicultural Arts Center in April and early May!


Benedick is determined to “die a Bachelor.” Beatrice can’t imagine loving a man she can’t tolerate! They might just be the perfect couple. While the villain Don John sows seeds of rumor and alternative truths, the success of two noble marriages hinges on the hilarious efforts of local law enforcement. The giddiness of the game of love, tempered by conspiracy, enflames this wittiest and most enchanting of Shakespeare’s romantic comedies. The light-hearted story is set against the turmoil of feuding brothers that explores how cunning and mischief can unravel reputations of couples of any gender.

On the Real Side: Why We Cling to Racism and All That Other Divisive Stuff

MAY 30 at 7PM


For some, who believe we have made significant progress in dealing with racism, things are looking better. However, for many others who believe that we still have a way to go, we need to address the ways in which we consciously and unconsciously reinforce thinking patterns and behaviors that sets us all back. Janis A. Pryor adapts for the stage a portion of her newest novel, Dinner With Trixie, the south settles an old score with the north, which dissects the hypocrisy of the north regarding racism.


The dialogue that will follow the play will be led by Pryor, an International Television & Film Award winner for Cultural Programming, Iris Award Winner for Talk Show programming and former Producer and Host of the syndicated radio show, Commonwealth Journal, and will include the cast and creative team.


All events are free and open to the public. RSVPs requested.
