The work of Shakespeare comes to The Citadel
The National Players, the nation's oldest theatrical touring company, brings its production of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" to The Citadel on Thursday, February 28.
One of Shakespeare's most-loved romantic comedies tells the story of two couples -- one totally devoted to each other and the other always locking horns, somehow immune to the charms of love. It is filled with friendship, betrayal, mistaken identity, hilarious antics and love.
"Much Ado About Nothing" is part of The Citadel's ever-popular Fine Arts Series.
Since its inception in 1965, the Fine Arts Series has provided the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and the Lowcountry community with a variety of programs, including opera, musical ensembles, dance groups and classical dramatic presentation.
Fine Arts performances are free and open to the public. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. in Mark Clark Hall Auditorium. No admission is permitted after 7:30 p.m.
The spring Fine Arts Series will culminate April 11 with a 7:30 p.m. performance by the Charleston Community Band, 60 musicians from all walks of life, including Citadel professors Mary Greenawalt, Alix Darden, John Bonds and Choral Director Nancy Lefter.
The Citadel's Director of Music, Herb Day, directs the Charleston Community Band.
