Cringe Night

cringe event

We’ve all been through adolescence. And, most of us have the diaries, bad poetry, and saved notes passed in Math class to prove it. Dig yours out and come share aloud your (unintentionally) hilarious and genuine teenage notions. Hosted by local author, June Melby, there will be lots of laughing and hey, it’s cheaper than therapy!!

One of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing, set in a prosperous Italian villa, sparkles with the blossom of new love, and the famous battle of wits between Beatrice and Benedick. Though a shadow is cast by the machinations of jealous Don John, all wrongs are righted and happiness wins the day in this 90 minute production performed by the young actors (age 14-18) of Upstart Crow Theatreworks.
