Bard in the Quad continues its tradition of bringing quality, innovative Shakespeare productions to Corvallis in a casual and fun summer atmosphere. Make the most of your experience by bringing a picnic dinner, warm clothing, chairs, and blankets.


Please note, due to construction on the Quad, the 2023 production of Much Ado About Nothing will be staged on the East edge of the MU Quad with seating on the lawn of the Strand Agriculture Hall. The ticket booth will be set up in the SEC Plaza (2501 SW Jefferson Way, Corvallis, OR 97331) on the side of the Memorial Union Building. Please access the ticket booth from Jefferson Way for ticket purchases and will call. Entry to the seating area will be accessible through the SEC Plaza only. Patrons with mobility concerns can be dropped off on Jefferson at the Plaza. The closest parking areas to the event will be on SW Benton Pl, the Goss Stadium lot, or the lot on SW 15th and SW Washington. We are sorry for any inconvenience. 


Cookies, coffee and cocoa will be available during intermission with a $1 suggested donation at the Box Office Tent.
