Summer 2017:
Richard III
Much Ado About Nothing

"The very best summer thing."
-- Warren Greenwood, Ithaca Times

For summer 2017, we'll be pairing the final installment in our history play sequence with one of Shakespeare's most popular battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedies!

Richard III: The Winter Of Our Discontent
July 13, 15, 21, 23, 27, 29 at 6 pm

The grand finale in ISC's epic series of Shakespeare's English history plays! The Wars of the Roses are over, the house of York has been victorious, and England is at peace...until Richard of Gloucester begins maneuvering against his own family to take the throne for himself.

Shakespeare's most fascinating villain sends the country spiraling back into civil war, leading to a final confrontation in which the living and dead alike must battle for the soul of the nation.

Much Ado About Nothing
July 14, 16, 20, 22, 28, 30 at 6 pm

When Don Pedro and his soldiers arrive in sunny Messina for some much-needed R & R, love blossoms, and Beatrice and Benedick rekindle their merry war of wit. Don Pedro attempts to out-do Cupid by tricking Beatrice and Benedick into falling in love with each other, while Don John and his drunken henchmen scheme to ruin the marriage of their hated rival.

Music, dance, romance, one of Shakespeare's wittiest heroines, and the most hopelessly hilarious night watchmen ever imagined come together in this brilliant romantic comedy.
