"There was a star danced,
and under that was I born."

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer

July 13 - August 7 | Schubert Theater

With a zest for love and a love of life, Shakespeare’s spirited comedy offers a tale of two courtships. Beatrice and Benedick elevate the art of the quarrel in their duel of glittering wordplay, while Claudio and Hero have their true love put to the test. Dastardly villains are challenged by comical officers, as honor and desire collide to create much ado about laughter
and love. Ages 6+

Composed at the height of Shakespeare’s career, along with beloved comedies such as Twelfth Night and As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing remains one of the playwright’s most popular and most performed plays.
