Equal parts comedy, drama, and love story Much Ado About Nothing brings to the stage the foolish antics of Dogberry and company, the fragile love of Claudio and Hero, and the brawling wit of Beatrice and Benedick. Under the direction of Nathaniel Montgomery, Laark Productions energetically sets these characters loose in the world of 1945 California. The war is over, the party has begun, and trickery and treachery are in the air!
Actors Melanie and Loring Snyder, brothers Justus and Duncan Burkitt, Parker Anderson and Ron Hammer are joined by Laark co-founders Lane and Karla Burkitt and a versatile and talented cast to create the must-see event of the summer season in Prescott.
