Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing
By William Shakespeare

June 19 – July 26, 2020

“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.” 

If you think Romeo and Juliet were “a pair of star-cross’d lovers,” wait until you meet Beatrice and Benedick! These viper-tongued nemeses are made for one another. And everyone sees it…except them. It will take a village of meddlers, gossips, and fools to nudge these two toward the altar. Enjoy Shakespeare’s smart and sassy romantic comedy under the stars at the PFI Historic Park in Ellicott City. Bring a picnic!

PICNIC! Picnic tables for six,  and cafe tables-for-two, are available for rent. Also, we welcome groups and preshow receptions in the park starting 90 minutes before showtime.  For rentals and discounted advance group sales (10 or more adults), reserve by contacting the Box Office by email or by phone at 410-244-8570.
