Waterloo Millennium Green, London
Old friends will be reunited, new loves may develop, and with the merry quarrellers, Beatrice and Benedick, together again, there are sure to be fireworks… With the local watchmen keeping an eye on proceedings, what could possibly go wrong? Sit back, relax, and enjoy the party!
We are delighted to be taking this brand new production of Much Ado About Nothing to the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Outdoor Festival at The Dell in Stratford-Upon-Avon, followed by two performances closer to our home turf in London. Bring a picnic, slap on the sun cream, and join us in a show that puts the audience at the very heart of the action.
The performances last 90 minutes and are suitable for all ages.
We advise that you arrive 20-30 minutes before the advertised start time.
The London performances will be preceeded by free children’s mask-making workshops, led by members of the company. Those taking part will get the opportunity to decorate and keep their own mask which can be used during the performance that follows. These workshops will take place at 1pm.
