The play ran for two years on Broadway and was previously presented by the Lamp-Lite Players in 1979.

Much Ado About Nothing

Pat Harris’ adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, was originally scheduled to be performed in 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID-19.

The play is a unique rendition of one of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies. The story is timeless, even today: young couple meets, falls in love, and nothing goes according to plan.

Whether you have little or no experience with Shakespeare, or are an ardent fan, chances are you will enjoy this classic tale of romance, deception and comic situations that arise…”as merry as the day is long.”  (Act II, i).

The exact dates for the performance will be announced in early July 2022, along with the schedule for the remainder of the 2022-23 Lamp-Lite Season.

Week 1 — Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm | Sunday at 2:00pm
Week 2 — Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm | Sunday at 2:00pm
AUDIENCE DRESS REHEARSAL: Thursday (of Week 1) at 7:30pm

Please prepare a 1-2 minute monologue, recitation, or small scene — anything that gives the directors an idea of your presence onstage. Even reciting a nursery rhyme will work.
