Just a reminder that Mt. Greylock Regional High School will present Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing this Wed. and Thurs. evenings at 7 p.m., part of the Fall Festival of Shakespeare .

This is Shakespeare's most accessible and modern romantic comedy. There are two parallel plots. Benedick and Beatrice are constantly bickering until their friends trick them into falling in love. Hero and Claudio, meanwhile, seem like the perfect couple until a villainous type conspires to break them up. To add a bit of hilarity, there's a bumbling constable called Dogberry who has many malapropisms and pratfalls but manages to come out on top, with the help of his merry crew. This play has pranks, jests, mistaken identities, and perhaps even a tango. Will there be a happy ending? Come and find out!

The Fall Festival of Shakespeare, which is taking place all over Berkshire County this month, has won some of the highest arts awards given by our nation and state. Shakespeare plays are understandable and exuberant when teenagers perform them.
Tickets are $5 for students, $8 for adults.

(This play, and the other nine plays in the festival, will be repeated at Founder's Theatre in Lenox between Nov. 17 and 20, if that's more convenient.)
