Production photos have been released from Iris Theatre’s promenade production of Much Ado About Nothing.
Much Ado About Nothing is a delightful celebration of the overwhelming power of love. Hero loves Claudio, and nothing, not even the scheming slander of a resentful Prince will stop them from being together. Beatrice hates Benedick, and Benedick despises Beatrice, but the more they bicker and fight, the deeper they will fall in love. This is a laugh-out-loud comedy for all ages.
