The soldiers return victorious from war, but the merry sparring – and sparks – between the stubborn bachelor Benedick and the self-assured Beatrice have just begun! Meanwhile, young Claudio and Hero are standing at the altar when schemes of the villainous Don John threaten to sour everyone’s happiness. Now, all hope for happy endings lies in the hands of the bumbling members of the Night’s Watch.
Shakespeare’s highly celebrated, romantic and razor-witted comedy gives us the battle of the sexes as a delicious war of words, striking hilarious chords and revealing timeless truths about love, change and acceptance.
Penfold’s production of this much beloved comedy is set on the Texas frontier, featuring live music and a trimmed-down cast of six virtuosic performers.
It also marks the eighth installment in the company’s “Penfold in the Park” series, an annual offering of free, outdoor summer theatre, made possible by a partnership with the City of Round Rock Parks & Recreation Department. Shows will run at 8 p.m. from May 31-June 23 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
