With this year’s Teen Intensive productions, the kids of the Duluth Playhouse are taking on Shakespeare and lacing up roller skates. The productions include “Much Ado About Nothing,” where Beatrice and Benedick go wit-to-wit while their friends try to get them to fall in love, and “Xanadu Jr.,” where a Greek goddess on wheels helps a struggling artist.

Performances and behind-the-scenes work are done by theater-heads between the ages of 13-18.

“Much Ado About Nothing” plays at 7 p.m. Aug. 8, Aug. 10, Aug. 15 and Aug. 17; “Xanadu Jr.” is at 7 p.m. Aug. 9 and Aug. 16 and 2 p.m. Aug. 11 and Aug. 18. Tickets at duluthplayhouse.org .
