Prefer to soak up Shakespeare while lounging on a lawn beneath the twinkling night sky? This month, The Australian Shakespeare Company is back with another round of Shakespeare Under the Stars, allowing you to do just that.

This time, it's serving up a fun-loving adaptation of The Bard's timeless rom-com, Much Ado About Nothing, packed with giggles for audiences of all ages. Starring Anna Burgess, Nicholas Cameron and Alex Cooper, the production will pop up in the Royal Botanic Gardens' Southern Cross Lawn for a starlit season from Saturday, December 17–Saturday, February 4.

Brimming with toe-tapping original pop tunes, the play reimagines Shakespeare's classic battle-of-the-sexes comedy with an infectious sprinkling of sitcom, pantomime and rock 'n' roll swagger.

And you can enjoy it all from the comfort of your picnic rug — either while tucking into BYO snacks and drinks, or kicking back with a few goodies from the kiosk. Reserve tickets are also available.
