MuchAdoNothing

Theatre Arts presents “Much Ado About Nothing”

Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy by William Shakespeare about two pairs of lovers, Benedick and Beatrice, and Claudio and Hero.  Benedick and Beatrice are engaged in a very “merry war”; they are both very glib and proclaim their scorn for love, marriage, and, especially, for each other. In contrast, Claudio and Hero are sweet young people who are rendered practically speechless by their love for one another.  Benedick and Beatrice are tricked into confessing their love for each other, and Claudio is tricked into rejecting Hero at the altar.  However, Dogberry, a Constable who is a master of malapropisms, discovers the evil trickery of the villain, Don John.  In the end, Don John runs away, Claudio and Hero are reunited and everyone else joins in a dance celebrating the happy marriages of the two couples.
