WHAT YOU WILL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
Come one, come all to the What You Will Shakespeare Company's Mom's Weekend Show: Much Ado About Nothing!
What You Will's production of Much Ado puts a fresh social lens on the well-known production; staging the classic love stories and mishaps throughout The Bard's comedy of manners with the perspectives of modern standards and interpretations of actions. Throughout the delightful romp in the garden that is this show, the heartwarming highs and the staggering lows of these characters' relationships show us that, for better or worse, companionship is the cornerstone of a life fully lived; no one can truly live alone.
About What You Will Shakespeare Company
The What You Will Shakespeare Company presents the works of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries in a humanistic and accessible light. Through student produced Shakespeare we are there to provide a bridge between the Early Modern period and today's contemporary audiences by entertaining as well as challenging our audiences to explore inner truths of humanity and of themselves.
