Drama Club Performance, "MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING"
7:30 p.m., Hatfield Hall Theater

Considered one of Shakespeare's best comedies contrasting two pairs of lovers in a witty and suspenseful battle of the sexes.  Attracted to each other, the maddeningly skeptical Beatrice and Benedick are dead-locked in a lively war of words until their friends hatch a plot to unite them.  The mutually devoted Hero and Claudio, on the other hand, all too quickly fall victim to a malicious plot to part them.  Near-fatal complications ensue, but with the help of the hilarious Constable Dogberry and his confederates, the lovers are ultimately united.  Tickets are $15 for adults; $10 for youths and free for all Rose-Hulman students. Reservations are required.
