Now in its fifteenth year, Cambridge University's CAST (Cambridge American Stage Tour), established under the patronage of Dame Judi Dench, has been performing to packed houses and critical acclaim. Each September, Cambridge's most talented actors, directors, designers and technicians travel across the Atlantic to bring a Shakespeare play to colleges, high schools and professional theatres. This year's production, Much Ado About Nothing, will be directed by Emily Burns. The Cambridge American Stage Tour (CAST) says of this year’s play: “Filled with live music, a line-up of vibrant characters and sparkling dialogue, this is Shakespeare’s comedic skill at its absolute best. As devious strategies are prepared, sides drawn and redrawn, and untruth after untruth exposed, the outcome of each romantic match is just too close to call — at least until the final hand has been shown!”
