This modern-day retelling of Shakespeares Much Ado About Nothing takes place at the idyllic Camp Dogberry, where sisters Bee and Hana Leonato have lived their whole lives. Their parents own the place, and every summer they look forward to leading little campers in crafts, swimming in the lake, playing capture the flag and Sproutball, and of course, throwing legendary counselor parties.
This year, the camp drama isnt just on the improv stage. Bee and longtime counselor Ben have a will-they-or-wont-they romance thats complicated by events that happenedor didnt happenlast summer. Meanwhile, Hana is falling hard for the kind but insecure Claudia, putting them both in the crosshairs of resident troublemaker John, who spreads a vicious rumor that could tear them apart.
As the counselors juggle their camp responsibilities with simmering drama that comes to a head at the Fourth of July sparkler party, theyll have to swallow their pride and find the courage to untangle the truth, whether it leads to heartbreak or happily ever after.
