Two scripted versions of Shakespeare’s play ‘Much Ado About Nothing.’ Two-page version and ten-minute version!

For ages 10 and up

Do you want to easily teach your students the plot of ‘Much Ado About Nothing?’ Here are two very short versions of the play that your students can act out immediately!

Included are:
  • A two-page version of the play
  • A ten-minute version of the play

Both versions feature original Shakespeare text and are narrated by a Storyteller. Every Shakespeare script on the Drama Notebook website has been created and edited by a professional Shakespearean actor.

To create an easy Shakespeare performance, use the short scripts on this website so that every student has a meaningful role. To expand any piece, ask students to read the play in its entirety and choose a soliloquy to add into the play. This can be completely elective, allowing interested students to take the work further.

Additionally, students can be invited to choose a sonnet to perform either alone or with a partner between the plays presented on performance day!
