Auditions for Much Ado About Nothing

Next year Shakespeare at Traquair’s production at Traquair House will be Much Ado About Nothing directed by Scott Noble. Auditions are being held on Sunday 14th January from 1:45 until 4:45 at St Joseph’s Neighbourhood  Hall in Peebles.

Auditions will be open to anyone who will be aged 14 and above at the end of May. A separate children’s audition for under 14s will be held at a later date.

We are particularly keen to see new people come along and get involved whether that be acting, costumes, make-up or helping the back stage crew. So if you’ve had a hankering for this kind of thing why not come along to the open auditions.

The auditions will be informal and friendly, so please don’t worry and there’s nothing to prepare in advance.

Much Ado About Nothing is a light-hearted romp set in Italy, telling the story of Benedict and Beatrice, Claudio and Hero and a raft of other characters. It was last performed by Shakespeare at Traquair 15 years ago with Scott in the role of Benedict, so we’re delighted to be doing it again.

The performance dates will be 30th May – 2nd June and 6th June – 9th June. If you want to know more contact the Production team on and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
