Beginning on Valentine’s Day, theater lovers will listen in on secret conversations at a costume ball, a grand courtyard, a jail and a wedding celebration as the Gainesville Theatre Alliance performs William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.”

It’s part of the fun for the troupe’s annual February Festival featuring two plays performing simultaneously.

“Much Ado” will be on the stage from Feb. 14-25 in the Ed Cabell Theater at the University of North Georgia Gainesville campus in Oakwood.

“Godspell” will be performed on the same dates in the Hosch Theater at Brenau University in Gainesville.

In “Much Ado About Nothing,” lovers Hero and Claudio conspire to set a lover’s trap for Benedick, an arrogant confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. At the same time, other conspirators work to run the wedding plans of Hero and Claudio off the rails. Then odd characters turn up to stick their feet into the works.

Performances will be 7:30 p.m. Feb. 14-17, 19 and 21-25 and 2:30 p.m. Feb. 18 and 25, in the Continuing Education/Performing Arts Center, University of North Georgia Gainesville campus, 3820 Mundy Mill Road, Oakwood.

Tickets range from $12 to $26 depending on seat location. They can be purchased on the website, www.gainesvilletheatrealliance.org or by calling 678-717-3624.
