"Weaving wit, romance, and comedy, Much Ado About Nothing is a whirlwind race to the finish line of 'happily ever after,'" press notes state. "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 creative team includes Sean Fanning (scenic design), Elisa Benzoni (costume design), Chris Rynne (lighting design), Kevin Anthenill (sound design), Jan Gist (vocal coach), Brian Byrnes (movement), Amanda Penaloza (choreographer), Nicole Ries (stage manager) and Jesse Buck-Brennan (assistant stage manager).
