Classic Chic Productions is founded on the notion that there are great roles in the theatre (both male and female) that appeal to us as actors and human beings. We are creating a forum for women to explore these possibilities.

Classic Chic Productions will present Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, directed by Rebecca Patterson, at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, in the Historic Theatre as part of their Femme Series in February 2019. We are beyond excited to share this news! With heartfelt thanks to the Cultch for including us in their season.

Much Ado About Nothing will be part the Cultch’s Femme Series playing in the Historic Theatre Feb 5-16, 2019. It will be directed by Rebecca Patterson (founder, Queen’s Company, NYC) who will be present at the auditions. This production will be set in a theatrical world evoking Colonial North Africa. This deadly serious and sublimely ridiculous story—of soldiers in love and women confined by tradition—is a bold and playful romp through the extremes of desire and ambition, loyalty and redemption, featuring an all-female identifying cast. The genders of the characters will be played as written, although we are less interested in playing a convincing man than we are in exploring the humanity and reality of each character.
