SARATOGA SPRINGS — After a more than two-year hiatus due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Saratoga Shakespeare Company returns to the presentation of free, live theatre in Saratoga Springs’ Congress Park.
The Company will present William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, “Much Ado About Nothing,” at 6 p.m. each night July 20 – 23.
Free and open to the public, patrons are encouraged to bring their own chairs, blankets, or other seating as the shows will be presented on a stage set up on the lawn in Congress Park in front of the duck pond and war memorial.
The performance is directed by Wesley Broulik and stars Saratoga Shakespeare Favorite, Tim Dugan, as Benedick and Laura Menzie as Beatrice, each outwardly contemptuous of each other and of the institution of marriage, but who are brought together with great comedic effect by circumstance and the well-intentioned machinations of their family, friends, and compatriots.
