Shakespeare's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING - Theatre's Spring Show AUDITIONS!
Spring Theatre Show
“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.”
Sheldon High School’s performing arts department is proud to present its new adaptation of the classic comedy by Shakespeare!
Much Ado About Nothing
Auditions for Sheldon THEATREworks’ Spring production, Much Ado About Nothing, are scheduled for January 21-22, 2015. The auditions will take place in the Studio Theatre immediately after school. In addition, there will be a SHAKESPEARE workshop on Tuesday, January 20th prior to the audition. Any Sheldon student with a grade point average of 2.0 or above is eligible and encouraged to participate.
Much Ado About Nothing requires a large cast, with main roles for 18 actors, and an ensemble of up to 30! Come out and be a part of the great Award-Winning Sheldon Theatre Program!
Much Ado About Nothing is perhaps one of Shakespeare’s most popular and enduring comedies. The play is, among other things, a comedy about love, hate, jealousy, and miscommunication – a forerunner to today’s romantic comedies. Shakespeare filled
Much Ado About Nothing with physical comedy, disguised lovers, intelligent wit, wily tricks, double-entendres, an evil villain, and of course, a happy ending!
As young lovers Hero and Claudio fall in love, a “merry war” rages on between Beatrice and Benedick. To pass the time until their wedding, Hero and Claudio conspire with the Prince, Don Pedro, to set a “lover’s trap” for Benedick, an arrogant and witty confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. Meanwhile, the jealous Don John conspires to break up the happy wedding by accusing Hero of infidelity. In this classic “battle of the sexes”, all ends well when it is discovered that all the drama was “much ado about nothing.”
Sheldon’s production will be set in the mod 60’s, at Leonata’s swank pad. This is a fast paced production filled with trendy fashion, big hair, and plenty of sweet ‘60’s music and dancing! It promises to be a psychedelic hip time!Show More
Audition information is available in K009 or PAC1. Performance dates are April 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18 @ 7 PM, and April 18 @ 2 PM, in the PERFORMING ARTS CENTER THEATRE.

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically. Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos. Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
