Much Ado About Nothing
By William Shakespeare | Directed by Catherine Weidner

Confirmed bachelor and soldier Benedick and bright and, often belligerent, Beatrice are obviously meant for one another. Their young proteges, Hero and Claudio, exude love as fresh as springtime dew. But fate has other plans for these two couples, and while Benedick and Beatrice’s friends try to trick the pair into admitting their feelings, the deceitful Don John tricks Claudio into believing that Hero has been unfaithful. It’ll take a wild mix of games, pranks, a disrupted wedding, a faked death, and the utter ineptitude of the local constable to set true love on the right course. Much Ado About Nothing is a sparkling screwball comedy filled with colorful characters, passionate poetry, and Shakespeare’s wittiest wordplay.
