This Saturday, April 12, at The Depot Theatre, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival presents Much Ado About Nothing – Shakespeare’s beloved comedy where gossip, reputation and the battle of the sexes are front and center.

This classic is staged with a modern twist – set in Messina University, where football is a religion and a girl’s reputation is a Facebook post away from coming undone. Watch the drama unfold as these young lovers try to navigate a web of deceit with both hilarious and devastating consequences. Shows at 2 and 7p.m. Tickets $20. Visit philipstowndepottheatre.org to buy tickets.
