The Harford Community College Actors Guild is planning a performance of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" on April 26-28 and May 3-5 at the college's Blackbox Theater in Joppa Hall. Shakespeare's masterful comedy features as main characters two pairs of soul mates, the deliciously clever Beatrice and Benedick, always throwing jibes in a "merry war" of wit, and the sweet but foolish Claudio and Hero, whose innocent trust nearly undoes their love. Charming Princes, vile brothers, bumbling fools and sizzling coquettes fill this comedy, set amid the romantic heat of Renaissance Spain.

The event, sponsored by the organization Casa de Maryland, was designed to assist immigrants with compiling the documentation and filling out the paperwork needed to apply for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, launched Wednesday under an executive order issued by President Barack Obama.
