Theatre UCF presents Much Ado About Nothing: A Modern Verse Translation

Much Ado About Nothing: A Modern Verse Translation By William Shakespeare Translated by Ranjit Bolt Directed by Mark Brotherton Premiere on Saturday, November 7 at 7 p.m. On-demand streaming through Friday, November 20 at 11:59 p.m. EST

Two couples are brought together and whisked apart by the plotting of friends and enemies in this comedy of love and misunderstanding. Experience the infamous drama and poetry of one of Shakespeare’s most famous works in a new light.

Out of health and safety concerns for our students, faculty and patrons, Theatre UCF has made the necessary decision to present several free virtual readings that will take place throughout the fall semester. More information on performances this spring will be announced soon.
