Prenzie Players Return With ‘Much Ado’

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING will be the first Prenzie Players show since 2019!

Prenzie Veteran Jarrod DeRooi will direct this comedy from Shakespeare’s middle period — one of his wittiest, with Benedick and Beatrice starting out with total disdain for each other that blossoms (with much help) into deepest love. Everything that could possibly go wrong with this love story does, and the ways disaster is defeated are more than half the fun of this engaging work.

Showtimes: March 17-18, 23-25 at 8:00 pm, March 19 at 2:00 pm.

Location: The Village Theatre, 2113 E. 11th St, Davenport

Tickets: Pay what it’s worth! (You decide.)
