Brad Graham still has much to do before the curtain rises on his production of Shakespeare’s spirited comedy Much Ado About Nothing.

 

Much Ado About Nothing will run in a new 250-seat theatre in Drumheller’s Badlands Outdoor Amphitheatre that is the home of the Canadian Badlands Passion Play.

 

The main amphitheatre seats 2,700 people, which has deterred groups from trying to use it, but this new Forum Amphitheatre should prove ideal for smaller companies to use.

 

Graham’s Suspension of Disbelief company is the Forum’s first tenant.

When we think of Shakespeare, many of us roll our eyes and say a prayer of thanks that high school is over; but Brad Graham, director of the theatre company Suspension of Disbelief, is giving us a fun opportunity to look at Shakespeare differently.

 

“We get the idea that Shakespeare is serious business and needs to be told in a serious way,” said Graham. “but I think there’s something in almost every one of his plays that is just hilarious…sit-com worthy stuff. We were looking for something whimsical, magical and fun to give to our audience this summer,” Graham said.

When a new theatre space called the Forum was created on the Passion Play stage, a Rosebud couple just had to take advantage of it.

 

“(The) new Forum is an outdoor space with fantastic acoustics,” said Brad Graham, Production Stage Manager and Head of Props at Rosebud Theatre. “I really wanted to see something theatrical happen in the space.”

 

Graham and his wife Glenda Warkentin, who’s acted in ‘She Has a Name’ and other productions, opened their own theatre company, Suspension of Disbelief, and will present their first production, ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, at the end of August.
