In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and in keeping with the recommendations of Governor Baker, Salem State is canceling this event and all on-campus activities through the end of the Spring 2020 semester. Read more about Salem State’s response to the outbreak.

Join us at a Destination Wedding in beautiful Tuscany! In our contemporary telling of Much Ado About Nothing, a group of soldiers return from a war with few casualties only to find themselves in a new “merry war” in which love is the ultimate captor. When Benedick, a sworn bachelor, and his naïve-in-the-ways-of-love friend Claudio are reacquainted with the gender-defying Beatrice and gender-conforming Hero, the battle begins. While Claudio and Hero fall madly in love, Benedick and Beatrice resume their long standing feud and resistance to love. Will the power of love overcome Benedick and Beatrice’s combative ways? Will Claudio and Hero make it to the altar, despite attempts to break them apart? You are invited to come to the wedding and find out.
