"True love always happens instantaneously based purely on looks without having a shred of information positive or negative about your prospective partner. Did you just fall off the turnip truck or something?"

What if Much Ado About Nothing took place at a high school dance?

Mayhem ensues at Much Ado High School. Student Council president Don Pedro schemes to set up new student Claudio with Hero. Hero schemes to set up Beatrice with Benedick. And Don John schemes to mess up everything!

An enjoyable introduction to this Shakespearean tale with lightning-fast pace, hilarious characters, and witty dialogue.
