FSC theatre troupe opens with
"Much Ado About Nothing"
LAKELAND, Fla. (Sept. 23, 2004) - Florida Southern's theatre department begins its 2004-2005 season with Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" in the Loca Lee Buckner Theatre on campus. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7-9 and Oct. 14-16; matinees start at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 10 and Oct. 17. Paul D. Bawek, assistant professor of theatre arts, directs the play.
In Shakespeare's romantic satire, engaged young lovers Hero and Claudio play matchmakers for Benedick, a confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his sparring partner. Meanwhile, the evil Don John conspires to break up the engaged couple by accusing Hero of infidelity. The deceptions multiply and in the end, all turns out to be "much ado about nothing."
