Let’s take a look back at some of the other times that Seattle Shakespeare Company has produced “Much Ado About Nothing.”
Four of the actors in our current production of “Much Ado About Nothing” have previously appeared in the play when we produced it in the past. Bill Higham played Antonio in 1999, a role he returns to in this production. Brenda Joyner is also on her second go around with Hero after having played the part in the parks with Wooden O in 2010. David Quicksall, who plays Dogberry in our current production, played Don Pedro in 2006. Keith Dahlgren has appeared in “Much Ado About Nothing” three out of the four times we’ve produced it. He played Dogberry in 1999 and was Leonato in for the Wooden O version in 2010, and now he’s Friar Francis and a member of the Watch for our current version.
