There's plenty of romantic intrigue brewing in Eagan High School's rendition of the classic Shakespeare play "Much Ado About Nothing", which debuts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12.
The comedy centers around young lovers Hero and Claudio, who are to be married in one week, and the cynical sparring partners Benedick and Beatrice. Hero and Claudio conspire to trick Benedick and Beatrice into confessing their hidden love for one another. But the young lovers don't suspect that a sullen and bitter Don John is out to break up their own wedding.
Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14.
Tickets for the plays are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $5 for seniors. Tickets are on sale online at www.eagan.k12.mn.us. Click the "purchase tickets" link near the show's logo on the high school's front page.
