Magenta Theater presents a live, in-person production of “Much Ado About Nothing,” Sept. 10 through 25, at its theater in downtown Vancouver at 1108 Main St. Vancouver. To enter the theater, attendees must show proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID-19 test. Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status.
From the director of “Steampunk Romeo & Juliet” in 2014 comes one of Shakespeare’s best comedies. This adaption takes the characters and moments everyone enjoys and transports audiences to war-torn 1940s England. A trio of singers bring harmonious hits from the era via lively musical interludes.
A brief plot synopsis: Beatrice and Benedick are adamant in their mutual dislike, while Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. The two stories take an unexpected course when their world is shattered by a scheming malcontent who makes a shocking accusation. With “helpful” friends and relatives mixed into the story, comedic romps, and hints of romance and betrayal, the play is sure to entertain.
Performances are Sept. 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24 and 25, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance from app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=mag or $22 at the door. Doors open one-half hour before the show starts. For details, visit www.magentatheater.com.
