There is no excuse to sit home this summer. Get active.
DELAWARE'S SCHEDULE FOR THE SUMMER - OUTDOOR ADVENTURE AND WILD HYSTERIA
CHAPEL STREET PLAYERS - "FORUM'
Chapel Street Players celebrates its 50th FUNdraiser with Stephen Sondheim's funniest show (and one of the funniest in musical comedy history). Forum is a story about slaves, virgins, pirates and, for those of you who aren't interested in pirates ...skimpily dressed courtesans! FORUM has one of my all time favorite double entrendres "...carry my bust with pride," AND the epitome of Sondheim's genius in surprise and mirth as the last line of Act 1. This also marks Reneé O'Leary's 50th FUNdraiser. O'Leary cross dresses as the forlorn and long suffering Erronious, perhaps worth the price of admission alone.

ARDEN SHAKESPEARE GILD - Much Ado About Nothing
One of the most popular and charming of Shakespeare's comedies, Much Ado About Nothing features Benedick, an arrogant and confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. While Beatrice and Benedick hide their infatuation beneath witty barbs, young love blossoms as Hero and Claudio race to the altar. When the wicked Don John conspires to break up the wedding, will false accusations and misunderstandings prevent the young couple's happy ending? Witty wordplay, passionate poetry and clever plot twists make for delightful theater.
