Much Ado Out West By Wade Bradford

When: August 24, 2024

Time: 1pm-3pm

Where: Spotlight Community Theatre 

383 N. 3rd Ave. Stayton, Oregon 97383

Play Synopsis: 

Pedro, Ben and Claude discover that while they've been away at the Civil War, Betty and the other womenfolk have been doing all of the roping and ranching. This Western romp is inspired from Shakespeare's hilarious battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy, "Much Ado About Nothing." Despite how much the cowpokes and the ladies of the ranch taunt each other, love seems to be in the air. Claude falls head over heels in love with Winny, a lovely Southern belle, but Calamity Jane, a rambunctious tomboy, secretly longs for Claude's affections and is bent on stirring up a big bowl of trouble when she doesn't get her way. Meanwhile, Ben and Betty are arch-rivals, only happy when they are insulting each other...or is it just their way of masking their deeply guarded feelings for one another? This easy-to-produce, fun-to-perform show is filled with witty, Western-flavored dialogue, Shakespearian twists and turns, and lots of wild and untamed characters just waiting to come to life on your stage.
