Much Ado About Nothing is one of the Bard’s best loved and wittiest plays, loaded with mismatched lovers, squabbling brothers, comic constables and bawdy humor. Young lovers Hero and Claudio are to be married within a week. To pass the time they conspire with Don Pedro, Prince of Aragon, to set a ‘lover’s trap’ for Benedick, a self-confessed ‘tyrant to women’, and the feisty Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. Meanwhile, Don Pedro’s half-brother, the devious Don John, conspires to break up the wedding. Shakespeare weaves lies, laughter and love into his entertaining guide to the eternal war between the sexes. This Much Ado will be performed by students of CSU’s advanced acting class in Shakespeare, and promises to be an evening of theatricality, poetry and laughter.
