Campus-Submitted Announcements

Arts
1.) ‘Much Ado about Nothing’ opens this week
8 nightly Nov. 14–18; also at 3 p.m. Nov. 18, Thrust Theatre, HPES Building, corner of Floyd and Warnock
$15 Adults, $10 students, seniors, UofL employees
If you expect your grandmother’s staging of William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado about Nothing,” think again. This “with-it” production takes liberties with The Bard’s classic comedy about gossip and getting played. It’s one version that you’ll really “get.” James Tompkins directs.
Additional Information: Theatre Arts.

Through Nov. 22
