MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

AUGUST 15–25 (Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 8pm)
First Street Common
Admission is Free! (donation suggested)
Featuring the famously witty on-again-off-again lovers Beatrice and Benedick, Much Ado About Nothing is the story of the trials of love in a society dominated by patriarchal traditions. Beatrice’s cousin Hero and the young soldier Claudio meet and fall in love, but when a man spreads nasty rumors about her, Hero’s voice is silenced and their relationship torn apart. Loyalties are tested as the community responds, including a ragtag group of officers who just might save the day.
