Much Ado About Nothing is Shakespeare's lush comedy/drama set on the coast of Italy. We had fun with it using a certain Disney pirate ride as a concept for the set, costume and characters. What a blast! Argh!
This is the full story, however, it's been cut down to a manageable length for secondary school students to rehearse and produce. The end result is approximately 90 minutes without an intermission. Of course, we added pirate dances throughout, a chase scene (think of the ride!) and a full musical number curtain call - but that's just me!
There are a minimum of 18 kids in this cast - though I have done it with 30+. You k now my motto "The More the Merrier" and in this case, it's really true.
