Chesterton High School Theater will present Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About
Nothing” on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1 and 2, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 3,
at 2 p.m. in the CHS Auditorium.
Tickets are on sale now in the CHS Main Office during school hours or at the
door before the performances. Cost is $5 for students and $7 for adults.
