Free Outdoor Theatre - Shakespearean Play "As You Like It"

William Shakespeare's As You Like It.

The play is staged in the late 1960s with Mad Men suits and hippies galore. There will be singing and a live professional wrestling match.

Rosalind's father, the Duke, has been banished to the Forest of Arden and she has fallen in love with a young, honorable man named Orlando. When life gets too dangerous for her, she too runs away to the forest – but dressed as a man. By chance, her love Orlando also goes to the forest where he writes lavish – but bad – poetry to his love Rosalind. Can Rosalind – as a man – teach Orlando the true meaning of love and how to express himself?

Last year over 1300 people enjoyed the fun and free Shakespeare performance in this outdoor amphitheatre.

Bring a picnic and delight in this comedy with laughs and love!

I haven't been to this venue, so I would suggest arriving a little early to get parking and seats. The play starts at 4:30. Once the event begins, I will be turning off my cell phone, so please be there on time.
