As You Like It

William Shakespeare

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

"And this our life exempt from public haunt
Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything."

Rosalind and Celia have spent their childhoods telling stories, dressing up, putting on puppet shows, and creating plays. But when Rosalind is banished to the Forest of Arden, play is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Their toy puppets become a means of disguise, and a chance for freedom.

A charming new take on Shakespeare's comedy of youth, love, and finding yourself, As You Like It will whisk you a way into the whimsical world of the Forest of Arden, where anything is possible. Perhaps you'll fight a lion, or marry a clown, or even fall in love with a puppet!

This production is suitable for all ages.
