The Young Rep Play

Much Ado About Nothing


Adult/Senior  $20
Student  $10

Beatrice and Benedick are the perfect match. It’s too bad they can’t stand each other. While their friends try to trick the bickering pair into admitting they’re in love, their young sidekicks Hero and Claudio start a romance of their own. But will false accusations, broken promises, and even a bumbling police force prevent a happy ending?  One of the most popular comedies in Shakespeare’s cannon, Much Ado About Nothing has captivating heroines, dancing wordplay, and the endearing desire to love and be loved in return.

No Shakespeare experience is necessary to participate as this is the perfect play to expose new Shakespeare learners to the accessible world of the world’s greatest playwright.
