This year we present Shakespeare's "modern" comedy, Much Ado About Nothing (abridged). Filled with hilarious deception, cracking word play, and truly dramatic consequences, Much Ado is Shakespeare's brilliant take on what true love really looks like. Follow the arrival of Don Pedro and his followers, Benedick and Claudio, to the home of the noble Leonato for a summer vacation. While Claudio falls instantly in love and wins the hand of Leonato's daughter, Hero, Benedick restarts his ongoing war of words with Beatrice, a woman his equal in every way. Will Don Pedro and friends trick Beatrice and Benedick into falling in love? Will the nefarious Don John ruin the marriage of Claudio and Hero? And what hilarious problems will the bumbling neighborhood watch cause? Come see Much Ado to find out!
