Aquila Theatre presents a guided tour to William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing

11 a.m., Friday, November 18
Shakespeare’s great comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, highlights Aquila Theatre’s 25th anniversary season. Don’t miss this opportunity to expose your students to highlights of a Shakespeare classic. A guided tour by Aquila serves not as a condensed version of the play, but rather as an educational performance meant to guide the student audience through the play’s key scenes. An actor hosts the tour by introducing the main characters and providing a narrative link between key scenes. These scenes are acted out in full costume, with sets and props used for the actual performance. Guided tours are one hour in length, including a Q & A session.

School Reservation Deadline: October 10


Spying, subterfuge, deception, false identities, slander, manipulation, and love all take part in this wonderfully entertaining battle of the sexes. Much Ado About Nothing, thought to have been written in 1598, belongs to a group of Shakespeare’s more mature romantic comedies. It is an exuberant, philosophical, and festive play exceling in combative wit, melodrama, and potential tragedy. Much Ado About Nothing is wonderfully intricate, flush with surprising twists and turns, and articulated in expert language.


About Aquila Theatre:
Aquila Theatre’s mission is to make classical works accessible to the greatest number. A play becomes ‘classical’ because we recognize that after a time it transcends the original culture it was created for. It retains the power to provoke the central question of what it means to be human. As a company dedicated to the classics, we feel a responsibility to acknowledge and explore newfound classical works. Founded in London in 1991 by Peter Meineck, Aquila is now based in New York City.
