Much Ado About Nothing
Set in 1946, the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival’s production of Much Ado About Nothing is festooned with big-band tunes and swing dancing, choreographed for a Busby Berkeley feel by Angela-Dee Alforque. Beatrice (Dominique Jones) takes no guff and Benedick (Nick Gailbreath) is lovesick for a delightful summer standard. Gates open at 6:30pm. 8pm 7/17, 7/19, 7/24, 7/30 and 8/1. $15-$18. William A. Carroll Amphitheatre in William Land Park, (916) 558-2173, www.sacramentoshakespeare.net.
