In an era of rapidly changing cultural landscapes and evolving theatrical tastes, it is truly remarkable to witness an event that has stood the test of time and continues to captivate audiences year after year. Such is the case with Brookdale Community College PAC’s Summer Shakespeare performance, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this season. As we applaud this milestone, we must also recognize the invaluable contribution this free event has made in serving the community, fostering artistic appreciation, and keeping the spirit of Shakespeare alive.

Much Ado About Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, takes center stage this summer, enchanting spectators with its witty wordplay, timeless themes, and unforgettable characters. Directed by the college’s talented faculty member John Bukovec and featuring a dedicated ensemble of student and volunteer actors, this production promises to be a theatrical delight.

Over the past two decades, the summer Shakespeare performances at Brookdale Community College have become a cherished tradition, eagerly anticipated by theater enthusiasts and casual attendees alike. The enduring popularity of these shows is a testament to the enduring power of Shakespeare’s work and the commitment of the college to provide high-quality cultural experiences to its community. What sets this annual event apart is its accessibility. By offering these performances free of charge, Brookdale Community College has removed financial barriers and ensured that Shakespeare’s brilliance is accessible to all.
