Much Ado The Musical is the much loved musical adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
The Musical tells the comic story of two pairs of lovers, Benedict and Beatrice, and Claudio and Hero. The lovers come together, both despite and because of others meddling in their lives. This comic masterpiece is one of Shakespeare's best loved plays and his 16th century language is stunningly contrasted with 14 songs from the 21st century rock world.

Performed by The Australian Shakespeare Company's Youth Ensemble, this production is sure to delight audiences! Our Bravehearts will perform in Melbourne, Sale Victoria and then travel to Prague!
