Since 2006, Bard in the Quad has presented innovative, quality outdoor Shakespeare productions to the OSU campus.

Bard in the Quad will return August 3-6 and 10-13 2023 with Much Ado About Nothing.

"I do love nothing in the world so well as you: is not that strange?"

Bard in the Quad returns for its 18th magical season with Shakespeare's beloved comedy featuring the will-they-or-won't-they pairing of Benedick and Beatrice, two wits who have sworn off love only to find themselves in an unexpected romantic entanglement. Much Ado has it all - dastardly villains, music and dance, witty fools and foolish wits, and enduring lessons about life, love, and forgiveness.

AUDITIONS WILL BE MAY 14 and 15 - visit our Auditions Page for more info about how to be a part of this production.
