Much Ado About Nothing Auditions

Next year’s Shakespeare 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 4:45ish 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 know anyone that has had a hankering for this kind of thing, please pass it on.

The auditions will be informal, 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, 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 we’ll get back back to you as soon as we can.

We look forward to seeing you in the New Year and in the meantime have a super Christmas!
