Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare
Directed by James Ijames
April 10-22, 2018
Mischief and merriment abound in Shakespeare’s battle of the sexes. Don Pedro’s army may have succeeded in their skirmishes, but in Messina, an idyllic country estate, conflicts of the heart prove much more trying. As young Claudio and Hero fall madly in love, and Benedick and Beatrice reignite their combative courtship, we quickly see how love can bring out the best - and the worst - in all of us. In a whirl of masquerade balls, mistaken identities, Much Ado About Nothing offers intrigue, passion, and adventure.
