After a sold-out season of The Comedy of Errors in March, Melbourne Shakespeare Company will take you on a whirlwind adventure of love, longing and laughter in Shakespeare's original 'rom-com', Much Ado About Nothing this December.

Set in the stunning Rose Garden at The St. Kilda Botanical Gardens and running for a limited season of just three weekends, Much Ado About Nothing is Melbourne Shakespeare Company's biggest production yet! Don't miss it!

For the starry-eyed young couple Claudio and Hero, love is in the air. That's if they can take their eyes off each other long enough to avoid being deceived by dastardly Don John.

For the bantering and bickering Beatrice and Benedick, love is a battlefield. Once bitten and twice shy, the sharp-witted pair are locked in a verbal fencing match. Is there anything their friends can do to open their eyes to their true feelings for each other?

This raucous romantic comedy is the timeless tale of two pairs of very different lovers, the people who want them to be together, and the people who try to rip them apart. And while Shakespeare fans may know this famous story, Melbourne Shakespeare Company has added epic song battles and dance extravaganzas which are sure to leave you wanting more!

See Shakespeare like it should be in this hilarious new production by Melbourne's funniest Shakespeare company.

Don't miss Much Ado About Nothing at The Rose Garden, St Kilda Botanical Gardens from 2 to 17 December 2017. Tickets are now on sale and selling fast.
