Comedy, drama, love, and tragedy: the fall play is among us! This past weekend Dramatiques performed the William Shakespeare’s renowned play: Much Ado About Nothing. This year the Dramatiques department took a risk and performed outdoors. Never done before, this was a perfect scenario for a Shakespeare in the Park experience. However, this production did not come easy as there were many obstacles in the actors’ path.

Kaila Phillips, a senior actress, exclaimed, “It was a struggle to rehearse on an outside stage because at almost every practice it rained. Skirts were soaking wet and I slipped more times than I could count. While it was challenging, it was also a fun experience because we got to do something that has never been done before. Even though the weather wasn’t good, we got to be in the natural elements which fit the play because most of the play’s setting is outside. The matinee was nerve-racking though because you could see everyone’s faces in the broad daylight.”

While difficult at times, the play proved to be a rewarding experience to the actors and audience. This new setting was unique in that it brought a realness to the experience, forming a personable relationship between the performers and the audience. Rain or shine, the actors still managed to perform exquisitely and stay true to their characters. Even when a bug flew onto an actress during the play, she managed to improvise and make some humor out of the situation. Many will agree that this play was very entertaining and one to remember.
