Performed at the Fremont Palace
August 26, 1993–September 19, 1993
Words are the weapons and love the ultimate victory in "Much Ado About Nothing," one of the Bard's most popular and romantic comedies. The battle of the sexes heats up in Messina as Beatrice and Benedick wage their legendary 'merry war' of wits and Hero and Claudio seek love in a world gone wild. Director Terry Edward Moore takes the audience on a swashbuckling joyride set in the ruffled and rugged cavalier period. Can love prevail in a world of dueling soldiers, clowning constables and Shakespearean villains? Find out when "Much Ado About Nothing" takes the center stage August 26-September 19.
