TITO Festival Day Two
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
August 19 @ 1pm
Shakespeare teaches us universal truths about humanity. In Much Ado About Nothing, we are reminded that the challenges of trying to communicate with the opposite sex and the pitfalls of stereotyping are age-old themes. Watch Beatrice and Benedick, Hero and Claudio navigate pride, trickery and hilarity on their road to love.
August 19 @ 5pm
First performed in 431BC, Euripides' Medea is, on one level, a classical Greek tragedy about a wife who crosses a terrible boundary to punish her unfaithful husband. Yet there are many levels worth exploring in this tale of revenge and justice, and our talented ensemble promises to take you on a though-provoking journey.
NOTE: Please be aware that this is a Greek Tragedy dealing with difficult themes. For a synopsis of the story, please click here.
