Coalville’s Century Theatre is to stage the UK premiere of a new version of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing next month.
The comedy has been translated into modern verse by Ranjit Bolt for US-based ‘Play On Shakespeare’, making this a truly international collaboration for the Leicestershire County Council-run venue.
The production is supported by Arts Council England and rehearsals are in full swing with cast members from the 1623 Theatre Company and Purple Theatre working with the Century Theatre team to ensure the show is a huge success.
Shows are taking place on Friday 6 May at 10am - a relaxed performance; everyone welcome, including school groups and 7pm and again on Saturday 7 May at 7pm.
The show brings together creative audio description and British Sign Language. Each performance is BSL-interpreted, and captioned on personal devices.
