MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
by William Shakespeare
Friday-Saturday, April 11-12 @ 8 pm

Sunday, April 13  @ 2pm
Monday-Wednesday, April 14-16 @ 8 pm

Much Ado About Nothing tells the stories of two sets of heterosexual lovers who struggle to make their love possible in the face of confusion, French scenes, misunderstandings, and stubbornness. Its themes center around ideals of honor, friendship, secrecy, and gender, which this production will explore through select cross-gender casting. A malicious scheme forces the characters to reexamine their views on the complexity of human nature, as well as the transformations possible, and helps them gather a deeper understanding of honesty and morality.
