Jimmy Maize to Direct CSC's Young Company in Much Ado About Nothing logo
Classic Stage Company will present the seventh year of its popular Young Company, which creates classical works specially tailored for young audiences. This season's production will focus on William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, and will run from March 5 through March 16 at Classic Stage Company. Jimmy Maize will direct.

Columbia M.F.A. students and alumni actors will be featured in this battle of hearts and wits. Directed by Jimmy Maize, Much Ado About Nothing, will be presented in a 90-minute abridged version, specifically geared toward student and family audiences.

In tandem with the production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, CSC continues its educational outreach program, focused on the development of young actors and young audiences in New York City. Student actors of The Young Company will be functioning as teaching artists in a series of workshops on Shakespeare in NYC public schools throughout the five boroughs, culminating in the students' attendance at special student matinees of Much Ado About Nothing. The overall goal of the program is for young artists to inspire young audiences. CSC'S Young Company reaches thousands of New York City public schoolchildren each year.
