Much ado about doing Much Ado

Well, last month, I mentioned that I was acting as dramaturg and Antonio (Leonato’s older brother) in the Camarillo Skyway Playhouse production of Much Ado About Nothing.

And as I said then, it’s been a blast thus far. Last night, we had our first full-show run-through. There are some truly wonderful moments in this production…can’t wait to see them all coalesce!

Well, opening night is now exactly two weeks away. Though I haven’t been on-stage for over twenty years, nerves haven’t hit hard yet (watch, that’s going to jinx it).

So, the show will be running the month of February, Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday matinees, ending the first weekend of March (when, as a birthday gift to myself, I’ll shave the mutton chops I’ve grown for the role).

If you’re in the Ventura County neighborhood, check it out.
