WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Wednesday's 7 p.m. performance of William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" has been moved indoors to the White Plains Performing Arts Center in the City Center due to the rain forecast.

The 90-minute production is free and open to the public.

Thursday's show is still set to be performed at Turnure Park at 7 p.m.

The Performing Arts Center, a comfortable modern theater space at 11 City Place is on the same floor as the movie theater. Parking is available in the City Center Garage or Hamilton-Main Garage.

Turnure Park is located on Canfield Avenue between Lake Street and Main Street. Parking is best in the Eastview School lot.

In the comedy, Benedick and Beatrice love each other but won't admit it, and an evil plot threatens to keep Claudio and Hero apart.
