Having just returned from deployment in Iraq, the soldiers set their sights on something other than war…love and deception. Can the young lovers, Claudio and Hero, survive the ultimate treachery? Will verbal sparring partners, Benedick and Beatrice, call a ceasefire in the name of love? Trickery, love, laughs and classic mid-2000s music abound in this production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING directed by Randy Baker.
