Weaving wit, romance, and comedy, Much Ado About Nothing is a whirlwind race to the finish line of "happily ever after." Everyone can see that confirmed bachelor Benedick and headstrong Beatrice are meant for each other-except for Benedick and Beatrice themselves. Love may conquer all, but not without a few battles along the way, and the verbal sparring between these two lovers has never been so much fun to watch.

The cast features Erin Elizabeth Adams (Margaret), Meaghan Boeing (Beatrice), Lindsay Brill (Antonia, Verges), Charlotte Bydwell (Ursula), Lowell Byers (Don Pedro), Jamal Douglas (Conrade, Messenger), Adam Gerber (Don John, Dogberry), Kushtrim Hoxha (Leonato), Stephen Hu (Claudio), Tyler Kent (Friar, Sexton), Allison Layman (Hero), Robbie Simpson (Benedick), Megan M. Storti (Bazira, Watch), and Patrick Zeller (Borachio).
