Much Ado About Nothing

October 25 - November 9, 2019
Longstreet Theatre

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Dustin Whitehead

Love, deception, and razor-sharp repartee take the stage in Shakespeare's beloved comedy!  The noble Don Pedro has his mind set on bringing together two romantic couples -- the smitten Claudio and Hero, and the constantly bickering Benedick and Beatrice.   His matchmaking efforts are foiled, however, by the scheming of the jealous, conniving Don John.  Featuring some of The Bard’s most cunning wordplay and a cadre of his most colorful characters, Much Ado About Nothing is indeed a “merry war” filled with adventure, romance and unwavering wit! 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
