MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING @ Black Box Theater
Mar 15 @ 7:00 pm
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING @ Black Box Theater | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Joshua Pohja 

The Bard’s famous comedic romp known for the brilliant war of words between the feisty Beatrice and the staunch bachelor Benedick, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party. War hero Claudio falls in love with Leonato’s daughter, Hero and their marriage is agreed upon. While marriage preparations ensue, a plot is hatched to make old flames and longtime bantering partners Benedick and Beatrice fall in love.

Despite Beatrice’s ire against Benedick and his claims to being a confirmed bachelor, when each overhears that the other is in love with him/her, he/she begins to wonder whether love between them is possible. This charming and spirited exploration of love and marriage, friendship and honor, features some of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most poignant dialogue.

HAIRSPRAY Student Matinee @ Wendy Joy Lindsey Theater | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Lyrics by Scott Wittman & Marc Shaiman
Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters
Directed by Kevin Schwartz 

This special performance is just for 5th-8th grade school groups! Space is limited–contact Group Sales at 414.290.7454 or by e-mail to book your seats today.

It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, and quirky, plus-sized, teenage Tracy Turnblad has one dream: to dance on The Corny Collins Show. When she gets put in detention with the African-American students in the school, they teach her some of their dance moves, and her newfound groove wins her a spot on Corny’s show. Overnight, Tracy transforms from a nobody into a star, and uses her newfound influence to advocate for racial integration on the television show.

Tony Award®-winning HAIRSPRAY continues to be one of the most widely-produced musicals today, not only because of its wit and charm, but also because of the powerful message of acceptance and progress that it portrays. The bright, energetic story of Tracy Turnblad teaches us all to fight for every human being’s equal rights.
