As You Like It turns the traditional rules of romance on their heads. Gender roles, nature, and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.
Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match. Her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy, she leaves with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to seek out her father in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love and wooing.
A firm favorite among Shakespeare’s comedies, and including some of his best loved characters, As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion.
Auditions are open to all, ages 12 and up. Come join us and add some fun into your spring!
