A full-cast Shakespeare comedy about quick wit, biting sarcasm, petty lies, and unshakable bonds, performed in a beautiful outdoor amphitheater.

“My talk to thee must be how Benedick is sick in love with Beatrice. Of this matter is little Cupid’s crafty arrow made, That only wounds by hearsay.”

Han and Leia, Ron and Hermione, and Sam and Diane. Atop the charts of bickering, belligerent, beautifully-matched couples, you’ll still find Much Ado About Nothing’s Beatrice and Benedick.

Madison Shakespeare Company’s latest summer comedy may be the playwright’s greatest. True love, stunning wordplay, spiteful schemes, a disastrous wedding, and lucky lawmen combine for an unforgettable night of romance and laughs.

Performed outdoors at the spacious Madison Country Day School amphitheater, 5606 River Road in Waunakee. Bring your own lawn blanket, cushion, or chair for best comfort!

Performance time two hours including one brief intermission.
