“Thou and I are too wise too woo peacably“

Shakespeare under the stars presented at the beautiful James Ranch Terraces, June 2015

A sampling of comments from our audiences:

“ What an utterly FABULOUS production of “Much Ado About Nothing“ by Merely Players at the magnificent James Ranch last night!!!!! We were blown away (no, NOT by the winds) by the sublime acting, supremely imaginative and playful direction, staging and technical direction, sets, costumes (!!!!), music. Hats off to you, cast, crew and directors. Thank you for an evening of pure delight. “

“Wow, what a great show last night! Above and beyond expectations. A great job in making Shakespeare accessible and understandable, funny and interesting. Loved the jean theme and the costumes and modern music interwoven. What a talented crew. REALLY loved it! You guys do such great work.“

“Wonderful, wonderful! Thank you for Much Ado! A lovely setting, dynamic acting, lovely, imaginative, hilarious costumes. A triumph for all, a delight, a treasure. I guarantee I will remember it forever.“

“Your magical, stunningly funny and delightfully entertaining production of Much Ado About Nothing was the best night of summer theater I have ever seen!!“
