To be or not to be... in fine weather for an outdoor Renaissance classics w/modern twist, ...that dear friends & fellow countrymen is the question?! Indeed, thus fair weather contingent will make this production my first ever to host an un-indoor or rather, outside picnic-style (rain automatic cancels). So pack your portable ornate Louis IV chairs, blankies, bugsprays (in case), fine wines, snacks/treats, &/or anything you like to share with group (or not, up to you) then make a beeline/ant trail to find us there.
Since not exactly sure how wide area is available to seat everyone, I shall limit grouping to small cluster until more info is obtained. Show starts 4:30pm, so pls.plan to be there by 4pm for adequate parking & locating group. If prefer to arrive sooner/later, just text (contact info provide later). Closer to the date, pls.check message thread for any changes, parking info, etc. Carpool always highly recommended. Again, thx for your understanding, patience & participation - cheers! =}
As You Like It
Presented by/at Concordia University- Nelson Amphitheatre
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?
Concordia University Irvine’s professional theatre company Looseleaf Theatre Co. | Directed by Tony Vezner.
"We are so excited to once again offer the community access to high quality professional theatre in Southern California," said Tony Vezner, director. "It will be an interactive and lively performance; so invite your friends, bring a picnic basket and enjoy some free Shakespeare in a great outdoor setting."
The play is staged in the late 1960s w/Mad Men suits & hippies galore. There will be singing and a live professional wrestling match.
Note: 3 or more participants pls. or shall forfeit event on calendar. I shall fwd contact info via Meetup email at least a day or two b4 event in case (ie.running late/postpone/plans change etc.) If you do not receive, pls.message me.
Important: Rarely pick up or hear phone DURING event if you're not on time for whatever reasons. I'm not being cruel or rude & phone might have limited or no reception. In some cases, venues such as inside/outside theaters discourage cell phone activities. Every organizer understands it's quite challenging to keep tabs on everyone while an event is in progress. If you have a smart phone, you can post comments via Meetup & will try to reply as timely as possible. Thanks for understanding & hope 2-c-u all there, cheers!
Also: Pls.do not RSVP "no" - already assume you're not attending if you don't signup, thx! =)
