William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing: Experience the original rom-com, live at KMC OnStage! This is Shakespearean classic, full of fast romance, clever hijinks, and a whole lot of happily ever afters. Rumors and evesdropping result in chaotic twist and turns for two couples, as Benedick and Beatrice are tricked into confessing their love for each other, and Claudio is tricked into rejecting his love, Hero, at the altar on the erroneous belief that she has been unfaithful. It takes twists, turns, and teamwork to unravel the truth, but Shakespeare ensures that all is well in the end and the audience is rewarded with an epic double wedding scene. Show Dates and Times: March 16, 22, 23, 29, & 30 at 7 p.m. and March 17, 24, & 31 at 3 p.m. Tickets available for purchase on Webtrac, at the Kleber Java Café, and at KMC Onstage, Kleber Kaserne, Bldg. 3232, 483-6626; 0631-411-6626.
