Who says romance is dead?…Well that might have been Beatrice and Benedick during one of their legendary skirmishes of wit, but luckily the lovebirds Claudio and Hero have a cunning plan…So what could possibly go wrong? 2019’s Theatre in the Forest brought audiences Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of courage and courtship to the beautiful woods of Jimmy’s Farm!
MUCH ADO featured some of Shakespeare’s most iconic couples and we’re over the moon to have a cast full of familiar faces, who brought their extraordinary musical talents to transport audiences back in time to the 1940s!
