Much Ado About Nothing


Hero and Claudio are revoltingly smitten, Beatrice and Benedict are… well… playing way too hard to get. Nevertheless, love always gets there in the end – it just sometimes takes a few wrong turns along the way.

Experience Shakespeare’s classic rom-com delivered by Queensland’s brightest young actors, dancers and musicians in this 70-minute twisty, curvy roller coaster of love, loss, wits and fits.

Directed by shake & stir theatre co’s Johnny Balbuziente (George’s Marvellous Medicine, Romeo & Juliet, The Macbeths) and choreographed by musical theatre stalwart Andrea Arena (Aladdin, Grease, Wicked, The Lion King) don’t miss this contemporary take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy full of live music, palpable energy and laugh-out-loud love.

"In the creative hands of a company with reputation for excellence in re-imagining the cannon, like the previous Queensland Youth Shakespeare Festival productions, Macbeth succeeds in bringing the Bard alive for contemporary audiences. It not only highlights the universality and ongoing relevance of Shakespeare’s themes but shows how, even in his darkest plays, there is still room for productions to make their own mark."
