ARCC Students Staging Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing'

If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend or next, why not check out the spring play at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.

The theatre department is presenting Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing."  The play is being performed in the round, which brings the audience up close.  The scene is set in 'no time,' at the estate of Lord Leonato.  

Fans of this classic comedy will find it edgy where gossip and eavesdropping make love a twisted game.

"Benedick does not like the idea of marriage, he's kind of sexist, he's always joking around," says Jim Belden, who plays the role of Benedick.  "He's got like a biting wit, but then he kind of has like a redemption arc from that, when he ends up getting set-up by his friends with Beatrice."

Tricia Buerke, who plays Beatrice says, "She is the cousin of Hero and niece of Leonato who is basically a lord and who is good friends with Don Pedro and she is very witty and she doesn't really seem like she wants to have a man, she's kind of her own woman like a very independent female."

"Much Ado About Nothing" is being staged this weekend and next in the Performing Arts Center at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.  Performances begin at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased in advance online or at the door on the night of the performance.

NOTE: The Saturday, April 14 performance of Much Ado About Nothing at Anoka-Ramsey Community College is canceled due to inclement weather. The college apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. People who have purchased tickets and are able to attend one of the performances next week are asked to call 763-433-1320 to inquire about an exchange. Those unable to attend one of our later performances may call for a refund.
