Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. It tells the story of the return of a group of soldiers under the leadership of the Prince, Don Pedro, to Governor Leonato’s estate in the sleepy Colonial Outpost of Messina. These soldiers are self-avowed bachelors, disdainful of marriage and fearful of the potential for dishonor by an unfaithful wife. However, Leonato’s house is filled with lovely, unwed women, and boys will be boys and girls will be girls and the matchmaking begins immediately. After hysterical hi-jinxs and some not-so-hysterical misunderstandings,two of the reticent soldiers become eager grooms headed for the altar to be married.
Colonials is a newly formed Shakespeare Company. The cast is a group of well-trained and experienced professionals. The play is true to the original text — there are no gimmicks or changes. The script is virtually uncut and the production runs approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes. The production is suitable for all ages, although young children will have trouble following the arcane language — so will some of the adults. But for Shakespeare purists, the production will be a treat.
- The seats at the Miles are beautiful pressed hardwood, so it is advisable for you to bring a cushion for comfort.
