About the Show:
Originally published in the 1600s with the main characters returning from war, director Heather Sanderson brings a fresh, updated version to the stage as she takes MVCCT’s Much Ado About Nothing into 1982 Italy as the characters return from the World Cup!
MVCCT was founded in 1980 as a not-for-profit organization to provide area youth with quality theatrical experiences that are educational, creative, engaging and supportive. Through the use of hands-on learning of the theatrical arts, MVCCT offers children, ages 3-18, the opportunity to enhance their development—building self-confidence, character, self-expression, autonomy and responsibility.
MVCCT strives to stimulate and enhance the cultural life of young people by offering a creative outlet that helps them to develop poise, independence, and accountability through self-expression. Numerous studies clearly indicate the value of arts education in contributing to the emotional and educational development of young people. Research has shown that participation in arts activities is linked to higher academic performance, more community service, a higher level of self-confidence and discipline, and improved social skills.
