Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Presented by Kalamazoo Civic Theatre at The Parish Theatre

All is fair in love and war…..or is it?  In this Shakespearean farce, audiences meet two couples – Claudio & Hero, and Beatrice & Benedick.  One couple says they love each other, the other says they hate each other.  But which couple will make it to the alter in the end?  Beatrice defies the roles expected of women of her era.  Benedick is just home from the war and a bachelor who vows never to be married.  When Beatrice and Benedick meet, sparks fly and sparring ensues.  “Who needs marriage?” they ask.  Claudio, Benedick’s brother in arms, has fallen for the lovely Hero, Beatrice’s cousin, and asks her to marry him.  Using Claudio and Hero’s love, Shakespeare sets a lover’s trap for Benedick and Beatrice.  When the gloves come off, a comic love story is in the making!  Love, villainy, friendship, parent-child relationships, society and customs – Much Ado About Nothing has something for everyone!
