MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
Directed by Santiago Sosa
The Theater Bug is thrilled to bring our third installment of Bard at The Bug this spring!
SYNOPSIS: Leonato’s house is a happy one, complete with a beautiful daughter, Hero and a clever niece, Beatrice. But when Leonato’s friends return from the war, the household is turned on its ear by the instant attraction between Hero and Claudio, and the constant bickering (and, clearly, also attraction) between Beatrice and Benedick. But there’s a snake in the midst of all this affection, and Don John plots to destroy everyone’s happiness before some of our couples are even aware that they are indeed a couple. Masquerades reveal as much as they hide in this hilarious comedy. Set in the late 90’s to a fun and nostalgic soundtrack, this show is sure to turn anyone into a Shakespeare lover!

The Theater Bug is in a huge season of growth and change! It's an exciting, but also a time to reflect on our roots! Showmance is a love letter to finding where you belong in and out of the spotlight, and a special backstage pass in a day in the life of a "bug." We are thrilled to present a fresh take on this fan favorite with an updated script and an all star group of designers. We couldn't be more thrilled to have a little summer Showmance....
AUDITIONS COMING SOON!
