Kildare Catholic College students prepare to debut Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing

Kildare Catholic College students have been busily rehearsing their production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, which opens on Thursday night at the school.

Directed by Michael Mack, the classic play tells the tale of two couples caught in the middle of gossip and rumour that threatens their happiness.

Twenty students will perform at 7.30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from November 16 to November 25, with a special matinee performance on the final day at 2pm.

Tickets are $5 at the door and the show runs for one hour without interval.
