Join us in the Shakur Blackbox Theatre for Shakespeare’s As You Like It, presented by the Senior Acting Ensemble.
As You Like It is Shakespeare’s romantic romp in the woods. The characters chase each other through the forest of Arden, looking for love in all the wrong places – and sometimes in the right ones. Rosalind disguises herself as a boy to teach Orlando how to be a husband, Touchstone the clown lustily pursues the shepherdess Audrey, and Silvius pines after the unattainable Phebe, who mistakenly falls in love with Rosalind dressed as a boy! In this production, we do a bit of extra gender-bending, with women playing some of the male characters (and even transform some male characters into female ones). This is also Shakespeare’s most musical play, with a number of songs and a final dance.
