Audiences who saw our presentation of “King Lear” last December at the Lincoln Theater, or who’ve been packing our screenings at the Cameo Cinema, know that a live performance by the acclaimed Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre of London is not to be missed! And “Much Ado About Nothing” is one of the troupe’s most romantic, funny and musical productions of one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays. Now touring the UK, the show will move to South America before heading to the USA for two weeks, with Napa Valley hosting the exclusive Northern California engagement!

Critics in the UK are calling it: “a genuinely hilarious show” …
“The back and forth between the battling [Beatrice and Benedick], played to perfection by Christopher Harper and Emma Pallant, feels wonderfully spontaneous and alive..” 
(StageTalk Magazine).

“I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.”
“I will live a bachelor.”

We are currently seeking underwriting for free student tickets and educational workshops bringing the Globe actors to the Napa Valley classrooms.
