UDPATE: A close call with COVID forced Stowe Theatre Guild to cancel its shows Oct. 7-9, but the pause is just temporary. The show will open on Oct. 14 and performances are now scheduled for Oct. 14-23.
Stowe Theatre Guild presents William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” Thursdays through Saturdays, Oct. 7-23, 7:30 p.m., Stowe Town Hall Theatre, 67 Main St.
The production, set in early 1920s Little Italy in New York City, provides a fitting relocation for Shakespeare’s popular comedy. The play’s returning World War I soldiers are welcomed by an immigrant community where genders and generations clash over traditional roles in a changing world. The talented cast creates a timeless battle of the sexes, with a mix of loathing and longing.
The guild requires proof of vaccination and theatergoers must be masked when inside the town hall.
