Storyboard Text

  • Leonato prepares to welcome some friends home from a war, Don Pedro, a prince , and two fellow soldiers: Claudio, a well-respected young nobleman, and Benedick, a clever man who constantly makes witty jokes. Don John, Don Pedro’s brother, is part of the crowd as well.
  • Claudio quickly falls in love with Hero, Hero is Leonato's Daughter. Meanwhile Beatrice and Benedick (Beatrice is Leonato's niece) resume the war of witty assaults. Claudio and Hero agreed to get married.
  • Hero and Claudio are happy and decide the only thing that could make them happier is if Benedick and Beatrice were to fall in love. All the people help spread rumors about Beatrice and Benedick. When Benedick and Beatrice hear the rumors about each other, the plan works and they fall in love!
  • Don John also has a plan: he wants to spoil the wedding, and manages to convince Don Pedro and Claudio that Hero has been unfaithful before she is wed. Don John's servant is arrested- Conrad- and the plan discovered.
  • However, Dogberry, the captain in charge, is so useless the message is not passed on. Claudio arrives on the wedding day and refuses Hero, calling her a prostitute. Her family are persuaded to pretend she is dead. Later, the men realise they were tricked - Hero was completely innocent.
  • Claudio agrees to marry someone else, even though he cannot see her face during the ceremony. Afterwards, he is delighted to find out that Hero is still alive and he has just married her. The other surprise is that the other plan works: Beatrice and Benedick actually fall in love and at the end she accepts his marriage proposal.
