Much Ado About Mel Giedroyc

Comedian Mel Giedroyc will be taking on the role of Beatrice at the Rose Theatre in Kingston’s 2018 production of Much Ado About Nothing. Mel has previously appeared in a film of The Merry Wives of Windsor, one of 37 clips produced by Shakespeare’s Globe, marking the 400th year since Shakespeare’s death.

Director Simon Dormandy  described Mel’s acting skills as: “outstandingly subtle, powerful actor, as well as a very funny one.”

Jerry Gunn, executive producer of the Rose Theatre, said: “I’m very excited to see Mel put her stamp on the role, and it is entirely fitting to have such a popular actress and performer playing Beatrice, something that would have enchanted our founding artistic director Peter Hall.”
