William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy
As You Like It
Opening our fall 2016 season
November 17, 18 and 19, 2016 at 7:30 pm
As You Like It is William Shakespeare’s uproarious comedy about love, mistaken identity and how far you have to go to make a relationship work.
In the middle of a world with corrupt leaders and siblings fighting siblings for power, young Rosalind is forced to flee from the threats of her guardian into the Forest of Arden. Because of the danger of traveling as a woman alone, she disguises herself as a man. But in the forest, she encounters Orlando, a young man she loves–who has been forced to flee his brother’s murderous rage. Orlando also loves her, but has always been too tongue-tied to speak with her.
Will Rosalind find a way to keep Orlando’s love, even while she’s disguised as a man? Will Orlando learn how to communicate with her?
For this and three other romantic plots, join the award-winning Weston High Theater Company as they kick off their 2016-2017 with As You Like it on November 17, 18 and 19 at 7:30 in the Weston High School Auditorium.
