Shakespeare in the State Parks - Much Ado

Free workshop and Shakespeare performance at Kettle Moraine State Forest's Pike Lake Unit, great for kids, families and audiences of all ages.

Two couples find their romance interrupted by revenge plotting, mistaken identities and merry madness in this fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare's classic comedy. Six actors assume the roles of heartfelt Hero and Claudio, witty Beatrice and Benedick, brave Don Pedro, wise Leonato, villainous Don John and a host of other colorful characters.

Each Summit Players performance is an accessible 75-minute show preceded by a 45-minute educational workshop, entitled “Inside Shakespeare’s Story: Much Ado About Nothing,” offered to kids and “fun adults.” Additionally, the Friends of Pike Lake present a fish fry accompanying the event. The fish fry starts at 5:00 p.m., the workshop starts at 5:30 p.m., the show starts at 7:00 p.m., and both are completely FREE!
