    Warwick-The Illustrious Theatre Company is presenting Much Ado About Nothing at the Warwick Valley Winery as its 2nd annual "Shakespeare in the Orchard" continued through Aug. 1. As with last summer's outdoor Shakespeare production, the acting talent is drawn from the region, including Orange, Sussex, and Bergen counties. The Warwick Valley Winery is located at 114 Little York Road, just off County Route 1 near Pine Island. Curtain time for Friday and Saturday is 8 p.m.; Sunday at 7:30. The orchard opens about one hour earlier for those who would like to enjoy a little picnic of the Warwick Valley Winery's menu or the special BBQ. "Bring your own lawn chair" is the preferred seating for most, although there will be a special area reserved for blankets. It is also recommended to bring a sweater or jacket, as it tends to get cool in the orchard after the sun goes down. Advance tickets are available at the Winery, The Bookstore in Warwick, or may also be ordered by phone by calling 258-4858. Ticket prices are $13 regular and $10 for seniors and students; children under 7 are free. Shakespeare in the Orchard is made possible, in part, with funds from Orange County Tourism/Orange Arts and the County of Orange.
