The show is produced by Catawba Valley Community College in partnership with the City of Newton. The production is directed by Hollie Sherrill. All of our actors are volunteer and many of them have returned year after year to participate. We have actors driving from as far as Charlotte & Boone, NC.

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s comedic plays about misunderstandings, love, and deception that will be brought to life outdoors! Accusations, infidelity, trickery, and romance are all on the table in this beloved comedy! If you haven’t been to one of these types of shows before, it allows you to see theater in its purest form. It is theater the way it was performed in the time of Shakespeare himself as acting troupes performed publicly. Make plans now to attend! The Green Room is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
