The Winder-Barrow Community Theatre presents Much Ado About Nothing, a comedy about nothing of real significance yet over which much ado is made. The play is set in Messina (Sicily), presumably in the present at the time of its writing (circa A.D. 1598).
My bio as printed in the programme was apparently slightly edited for length. For anyone interested, here is the full, unedited version which I originally submitted:
Curtis Smith (George Seacoal) is, by day, a software engineer who inspects network traffic to detect and prevent computer trespasses, data theft, and other malicious activity. In Much Ado About Nothing he plays essentially the same rôle: a watchman who inspecteth city traffick to detect & deal with trespasses, theft, and other malice. Curtis has seen and savoured at least 30 of Shakespeare’s plays, but the closest he’s ever come to performing in one was being the Reader of the Prologue in Romeo and Juliet (the spot was won in a raffle the same night). This is his second production with Winder-Barrow Community Theatre: in Dearly Departed, he played Clyde. He enjoys square dancing, tree farming, and writing in brown ink.
