Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare

Sophia Gordon Center
Saturday, Apr 18, 2020 at 7:30 PM (ET)

Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and with the health and safety of our audiences and students in mind, we are canceling our April 11-19 performances of Much Ado About Nothing. While we are unable to present the live production in the usual way, please stay tuned for updates about how we will share the production with our audiences virtually. We can all use a good romantic comedy about now and theatre and all the arts are good for your health!

The Salem State University Center for Creative and Performing Arts box office will be in touch with all ticket holders about refunds/ticket exchanges.

Join us at a Destination Wedding in beautiful Tuscany! In our contemporary telling of Much Ado About Nothing, a group of soldiers return from a war with few casualties only to find themselves in a new “merry war” in which love is the ultimate captor. When Benedick, a sworn bachelor, and his naïve-in-the-ways-of-love friend Claudio are reacquainted with the gender-defying Beatrice and gender-conforming Hero, the battle begins. While Claudio and Hero fall madly in love, Benedick and Beatrice resume their long standing feud and resistance to love. Will the power of love overcome Benedick and Beatrice’s combative ways? Will Claudio and Hero make it to the altar, despite attempts to break them apart? You are invited to come to the wedding and find out.

Tickets: $20 general / $15 seniors and non-SSU students 18 and above / Under 18 admitted free
SSU students admitted free with ID.
