Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing"
Performed by Actors from the London Stage
Wellesley Summer Theatre Company is pleased to welcome the return of Actors From the London Stage for a ninth, much anticipated visit, to bring audiences Shakespeare's beloved tale of love, loss, and witty repartee. Presented in their spare, dramatic style, this troupe delights with their verbal, physical and theatrical dexterity.
The Actors from the London Stage (AFTLS) is one of the oldest and most respected touring Shakespeare companies in the world. Coming from such prestigious venues as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre of Great Britain, and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, these classically trained actors are equally dedicated to presenting first-rate professional performances at American colleges and universities, and to working with students to bring Shakespeare's work alive.
Sponsored by the Department of Theatre Studies, with generous support from the Ruth Nagel Jones and Frye Martinson Funds, the English Department, Upstage Theatre Student Orgzanization, the Shakespeare Society, the Wilson Fund, and The Cain Foundation.
