William Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing spins the tale of young lovers Hero and Claudio, soon to wed, conspiring to get verbal sparring partners Benedick and Beatrice to wed as well. Of course, it isn't a Shakespeare comedy without a little mischief, mistaken identity, and clown-foolery involved. Come join this rumpus event, as we enter an 1880's sideshow circus, complete with a lion tamer, tight rope walker, jugglers, a mermaid, and more brought to you by 37 Shakespeare Under the Stars students.
