Shakespeare at the Rose

1511084_10100819911737754_289038615076994920_nThe Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company will partner with Blue Lake Public Radio to bring Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing to the Rose Theater at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp for one day only, June 2 at 2:00 p.m..  The Rose is a reconstruction of an Elizabethan outdoor playhouse, taking inspiration from the Globe and other theaters of Shakespeare’s own lifetime.

Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing follows warring lovers Beatrice and Benedick as they wage a “merry war of words” when Benedick and his compatriots visit the house of Beatrice’s uncle Leonato.  Benedick’s friend Claudio plans to marry Beatrice’s cousin Hero, but the villain Don John accuses Hero of infidelity.  Beatrice seeks to clear her cousin’s name, but the key may lie in the hands of the constable Dogberry and his incompetent watchmen.

Pigeon Creek’s production is directed by Aili Huber, and is based on a 2017 production which the company performed at multiple West Michigan venues.  The production features actors Kathleen Bode, Kat Hermes, Josh Fremer, Scott Lange, Katherine Mayberry, Bridget McCarthy, Ashley Normand, Eric Orive, Brie Roper, John Scritchfield, Sarah Stark, Brad Sytsma, and Scott Wright.

Tickets are $15-$20 and are available at www.bluelake.eventbrite.com.  Ticket proceeds go to benefit Blue Lake Public Radio.
