The Cambridge University American Stage Tour returns to Frostburg State University to perform Shakespeare’s comedy “Much Ado About Nothing” on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre.
From Cambridge University, England, CAST productions cross over to the states and feature the best of Cambridge’s theatre talent. The show has been 11 months in the making with a full cast and crew working to create a thoroughly professional production.
“Much Ado About Nothing” is set in rural Britain. The scenes on stage will be of Monet-like impressionism, creating an image of heightened realism. The passion of the piece will be echoed in the warm colors of the stage with cool jazz to connect the characters with the audience.
CAST aims to make theatre available to the modern audience and wants to ensure that even those audience members who are not familiar with Shakespearean text will still be able to enjoy the production. This is accomplished by using innovative and ambitious methods and interpretations.
Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for students. For ticket information, call the FSU Box Office at 301-687-4145.
The appearance of CAST is sponsored by the FSU Department of English, with support from the FSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the FSU Office of the Provost.
