STAGED READING OF SHAKESPEARE COMEDY IN PISCATAWAY ON DEC. 12

Circle Players will present a staged reading of

William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing
the next production of Speak the Speech series of classic play readings

WHEN: 3 p.m. on December 12, 2015
WHERE:
Circle Players, 416 Victoria Avenue, Piscataway
ADMISSION: There is no fixed price for tickets; patrons may pay what they wish (cash only) at the door on the afternoon of the performance.

Much Ado About Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s great plays, reminds us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our never ending search for perfect love.

The play’s plot involves two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, who are to be married imminently. The devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.

The play will be directed by Diane Boyer of Bridgewater. The cast includes Jessica Damrow Sherman of Summit, Heidi Hart of Maplewood, Melissa Pinto of Middlesex, Arielle Beth of Livingston, Ed Faver of Roselle, Christopher Patti of Hillsborough, Mike Johnson of Hillsborough, Bassam Kaado of New Brunswick, Thom Boyer of Hillsborough, Rory Griffin of Frenchtown, Anna Paone of New York, Caitlin Jurewicz of Rockaway, and Christie Leigh Carver of Bound Brook.

Please be advised: due to the unique layout of this theater in the round, latecomers cannot be seated after the performance has started. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain.
