Talk-back immediately follows the Nov. 9 show; special Educator’s Night Nov. 16 

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare comes to the Harold and Jean Miner Theatre Nov. 9–19.

Much Ado about Nothing at Parkland TheatreOne of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing deftly combines humor with wit and insight. Rich characterizations and relationships entertain; mistaken identities delight; political deceit and misplaced honor nearly thwart the good; and love, in the end, conquers all. 

B.J. Gailey directs a cast of campus and community players including Mary Rose Cottingham, Chelsea Zych, Erin Kaufman, Tina Radi, Jenny Gleason, Jordan Needham, David Dillman, David Novak, Monty Joyce, Mindy Smith, Eric Sadovsky, Matt Christman, Parker Evans, Preston Roseborough, Abby Gailey and Quinton Ohlsson. 

The Parkland Theatre will be holding a talk-back immediately following the Nov. 9 show. Gailey, Scenic Designer Brian Morgan and members of the cast and crew will be on hand to discuss the show and answer audience questions.
