It may be “Much Ado About Nothing,” but it’s still a very special show for the residents of Rowland Heights.
Theater troupe Shakespeare by the Sea will bring the Bard’s works to life 7 p.m. Wednesday at Pathfinder Park in Rowland Heights.
“We had a city drop out of our summer season because of funding issues, so L.A. County Supervisor Don Knabe asked us to come out to Rowland Heights,” explained Artistic Director Lisa Coffi. “We were surprised by how many families came out for our first performance at Schabarum Park. There were lots of kids.”
Shakespeare by the Sea will present 41 performances throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties this summer. Coffi expects to reach an audience of more than 20,000.
