Much Ado About Nothing
Sugarloaf Mountain Amphitheatre
8:00PM, Sunday, July 29, 2018
Much Ado About Nothing takes an ancient theme—that of a woman falsely accused of unfaithfulness—to brilliant comedic heights! Shakespeare sets up a contrast between the conventional Claudio and Hero, who have the usual expectations of each other, and Beatrice and Benedick, who are highly skeptical of romance and courtship and, seemingly, each other. Claudio is deceived by the jealous Don John into believing that Hero is prepared to abandon him for Claudio’s friend and mentor, Don Pedro. This fiction is soon dispelled, but Claudio seems not to have learned his lesson; he believes Don John a second time, and on a much more serious charge—that Hero is actually sleeping with other men, even on the night before her impending wedding to Claudio. Supported by Don Pedro, who also accepts the story (based on seeming visual evidence), Claudio publicly rejects Hero at the wedding ceremony. She is so shamed that her family is obliged to report that she is dead. Don John’s plot is eventually unveiled by the bumbling constable Dogberry and his comically inept fellow constable, but not before the story of Hero has taken a nearly tragic turn. Claudio’s slanders of Hero have so outraged her cousin Beatrice that she turns to Benedick, pleading with him to kill Claudio. Former friends are near the point of mayhem until the revelations of the night watch prove the villainy of Don John and the innocence of Hero. Meanwhile, Beatrice and Benedick carry on “a kind of merry war” that tests their wits in clever but crushing repartees. Both have a reputation for being scornful and wary of marriage. Though attracted to each other for many reasons, they find it virtually impossible to get beyond the game of one-upping each other. Eventually their friends have to intervene with a virtuous ruse designed to trick each of them into believing that the other is hopelessly but secretly suffering the pangs of love. The ruse works because it is essentially true. At the play’s end, both couples are united. Performed by the cast of Tecumseh!, Shakespeare on Sugarloaf is a major initiative of The Scioto Society, Inc. to provide free Shakespeare to Southern Ohio. ALSO: Join us for Sack It With Shakespeare at the Chillicothe Public Library North Branch on July 28 from 11-1 for a FREE discussion over lunch. This event takes place at the Chillicothe Public Library Northside Branch lunch pavilion. Conversation moderated by Lance Mekeel from Ohio University Chillicothe. Bring your lunch with you!!

Christopher Conference Center

Join us for an evening of bourbon history, lore and of course, sampling! Tim Knittel is a former Kentucky bourbon industry insider with over a decades experience in bourbon education. He is also a certified Stave & Thief Society Executive Bourbon Steward (often compared to a Bourbon Sommelier) which is the highest classification available for a professional bourbon educator. Tim will be serving up 5 bourbons, some which you're familiar with and some not, while the chefs at the Christopher Conference center will be pairing each one with a course of food. A small silent auction of bourbons unavailable in our area will take place prior to the tasting. All proceeds benefit the education programs of The Scioto Society.
