Much Ado About Nothing

by William Shakespeare, adapted by Francine Davis

Director: Francine Davis
Producer: CherylAnn Welch
Performances: October 13, 14, 21, and 22, 2017
Location: Belmont Town Hall

This production, set in 1958 against the backdrop of the music industry, adds classic rock tunes to Shakespeare’s tale of the clever and charming Beatrice and Benedick, and their “merry war” of wits. The plot also features a rock star named Claudio, a villain who wants to destroy him, a bumbling constabulary, and lots of eavesdropping. The result is a fun show that is Much Ado About Nothing.
