As You Like It A hilarious romantic comedy with a fun 50's twist
This is a free event at Pinckney Town Square Park
Friday, June 9 & Saturday, June 10 at 6:30 Sunday, June 11 at 2:00
As You Like It turns the traditional rules of romance on their heads. Where else can you see a girl playing a boy...playing a girl? Come to Pinckney Town Square gazebo on a beautiful day, enjoy great 50’s music, bring chairs or a blanket, maybe even (as you like it) a picnic!
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.
In case of rain, we will perform at the Pinckney Library. Updates will be made here.
