Much Ado About Nothing

Shakespeare in the Park

Chardon, OH
Community Theatre

By: William Shakespeare

June 24 - July 3, 2022

Show Description:

Join us for a comedy about love, honor, death, and duels—but mostly misunderstandings. Pedro Prince of Aragon and his followers Benedick, Claudio, and Don John have returned from the war. They visit Leonato, Duke of Messina, father of fair Hero and Uncle to sharp-witted Beatrice. Love quickly blooms between Claudio and Hero, while Beatrice and Benedick denounce love in favor of biting banter. While the Prince plots to bring these two couples together, more dastardly deceptions threaten to tear them apart. Charming, witty, and full of surprises, this is one summer Shakespeare show you won’t want to miss!
