About New World Shakespere Company

 

All NWSC casting is non-gender, non-race and non-age specific.  

          All are welcome!

New World Shakespeare Company presents Much Ado About Nothing as a dramatic spotlight on Utah Women’s Giving Circle , investing in Utah women and girls.


In 2012, a group of artists came together to create New World Shakespeare Company, a theater troupe dedicated to bringing the bard's work alive in fresh and innovative ways in order for classic theater to be just as relevant and evocative as it was in the days of William Shakespeare. This summer, NWSC launches a production of Shakespeare's classic tale of gender politics and romance, Much Ado About Nothing, a story about lovers at odds who learn life lessons and come together in harmony.


Much Ado offers a timeless tale of the values of communication, particularly between the sexes. As the title suggests, a heap of the plot has to do with a whole lot of fuss over misunderstandings and  unspoken intentions. Beatrice and Benedick start the play warring, their romantic history layering on bitterness in the form of stabbing, rapier wit and wordplay. Running alongside this skirmish of sardonicism is a tale of young, fresh-faced lovers, their perceptions not yet made weary by the world, and a plot to undo everyone’s happiness by the bastard prince Don John. The appeal of Much Ado lies in its characters wonderful relatability. Not a one among them is without flaws, from Benedick’s heavily-masked insecurities to Dogberry’s malopropisms.


Much Ado About Nothing will be performed in Wasatch Theatre Company’s space at 124 S 400 W Salt Lake City, UT in the Gateway Mall.This production is unique in that seating is limited, but audience members are welcome to purchase tickets for standing room only. The run time for the play is approximately 2 hours with a 10 minute intermission. Concessions will be made available, including beer for patrons over 21 years of age. Tickets for seating are $20 and $15 for standing. Tickets may be purchased at the door or at newworldshakespeare.com
