Free Shakespeare in the Park at Stapleton

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival transforms The Green in Stapleton into 1840s Sicily in the romantic comedy “Much Ado About Nothing” on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 13 to 15 at 7 p.m.

This is Shakespeare’s classic comedy with a funny script and plenty of physical comedy, not to mention the verbal antics of the central “in-love” characters Beatrice and Benedick.

Most folks paid top dollar to see the show with the same cast, costumes and staging in Boulder, but these performances are FREE.

Bring low lawn chairs or a blanket. The play is open to the public on the Stapleton Green, which is the grassy lawn space in the heart of the neighborhood at E. 29th Ave. and Roslyn St.
