EXPLiCIT Summer Show:
Much Ado About Nothing

For our 6th annual Summer Show, EXPLiCIT presents Shakespeare’s delightful Much Ado About Nothing on a beautiful outdoors stage!

In this exuberant revival of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing , EXPLiCIT transports you to Italy in July, 1944. Rome has just been liberated by the Allies and, for Sicily at least, the war is over and the populace begins rebuilding their lives. This setting allows for a delightful romp in the park, as the players present a riotous, fun-filled evening punctuated by swing dancing and 1940s Big Band dance music. Directed by Caltech graduate student and newly-elected EXPLiCIT President Mark Kozlowski.

Grab a sweater and go!
