Theater Bug proudly presents Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, directed by Santiago Sosa. Local Composer Natalie Bell serves as Music Director, and local professionals Justin Hand and James Rudolph will play the roles of Leonato and Pastor Frances, respectively.

Leonato’s house is a happy one, complete with a beautiful daughter, Hero, and a clever niece, Beatrice. 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 between Messina’s favorite “will they/won’t they” couple, Beatrice and Benedick. There’s a snake in the midst of all this affection, and Don John plots to destroy these budding romances. 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!

Rounding out the creative team are Nashville favorites Cori Anne Laemmel (Artistic Director and Producer), Courtney Coppa (Assistant Director and Dramaturg), Morgan Davis
(Assistant Director and Text Coach), Melodie Madden Adams (Costumer), Tyson Laemmel (Technical Director), and Sarah Bolek (Stage Manager).

Much Ado About Nothing runs March 23-30, 2019, at The Theater Bug, 4809 Gallatin Pike, in the back building of New Life Baptist Church.

Tickets online at are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $12 and $7, respectively, if available.
