Come to the Frauenthal Center March 28 – 30 as the Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company performs “Much Ado About Nothing!” The sparkling battle of wits between reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick has made Much Ado About Nothing one of the Bard’s most beloved comedies. While their closest friends conspire to trick them into admitting their feelings, the villainous Don John works to destroy the relationship of Beatrice’s cousin Hero by convincing her finace she’s been unfaithful. Can the bumbling city watch lead by the clownish Dogberry unravel the web of lies and misunderstandings in time to save the day?

About the Company:
Founded in 1998, the Grand Haven based Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company is Michigan’s only year-round, touring, professional Shakespeare company. The company was started by Chicago area actor and director Frank Farrell, who appeared several times as guest artist with the Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival, and a group of West Michigan actors, including current executive director Katherine Mayberry. From 1998-2007, Pigeon Creek produced plays outdoors in the Ottawa County Parks during the summer months. In 2008, the company expanded to performing throughout the year, and currently produces 4 mainstage plays per season, as well as numerous staged readings, performances of Shakespearean scenes, and educational programs.
