Shakespearience 2019 Presents:

As You Like It

By William Shakespeare

Recommended for grades 7-12
February 18- April 26

“Do you not know I am a woman? When I think, I must speak.”

Shakespeare’s most romantic comedy is this year’s Shakespearience tour. Having to flee the home of her uncle, Rosalind disguises herself as a man and brings along her cousin Celia and the clown Touchstone. Taking refuge in the Forest of Arden, they find adventure and romance. Mistaken identity and disguise lead to revelations of honesty and truth and the nature of love.
