About the show
Set as a play within a music concert this production of Much Ado About Nothing draws on pop music and rock imagery to create a musical production that is wonderfully romantic, hilariously funny and truly rocks along!
The whole play takes place on Signor Leonato’s garden stage, which is established as a venue with all the public as guests. The stage is dressed with various road cases that serve as moveable set that has all the elements of a music concert.
The play opens with Beatrice and Hero’s all girl country rock group performing, their hit single – “Fair Eye’s”. They are soon upstaged by the return of Benedict and his rock group back from a world concert tour and performing, their hit single – “Hey Nonny Nonny”. From here the play unfolds using a musical theme to weave the scenes on and off the stage.
