MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
Written by William Shakespeare

May 18-21, 2023
A perpetual Shakespearean favorite; rich, uplifting and oh-so-funny.
Leonato’s house is a happy one, complete with beautiful daughter Hero and clever niece Beatrice, as well as Beatrice’s aging father Antonio. But when Leonato’s friends return from war, the household is turned on its ear by the instant attraction between Hero and Claudio, and the constant bickering (and, clearly, also attraction) between Beatrice and Benedick. But there’s a snake in the midst of all this affection, and Don John plots to destroy everyone’s happiness before some of our couples are even aware that they are indeed a couple. Masquerades reveal as much as they hide in this hilarious comedy.
