As You Like It

William Shakespeare’s

As You Like It

April 7 – 29, 2023

Previews April 5 and 6

Banished by her dodgy uncle, Rosalind flees the city for the Forest of Arden, disguising herself as a man attempting to hide among the locals. It is not too long before she befriends a rag-tag group of exiles and bumps into her also-on-the-run crush, Orlando. The attraction is mutual, but will Rosalind reveal her true identity or kick him to the curb? As if! Don’t miss this Brit-pop musical romp through Shakespeare’s comedy, set in the 1990s featuring an original collection of songs that will make you want to burn a CD!

Run Time: 2 hours 30 minutes (plus 15 minute intermission)

90s Nite

Friday April 21, 2023 at 7:30pm

Dust off your denim jackets, ripped jeans, and flannel shirts, dig out your scrunchies and butterfly clips, and lace up those combat boots with knee high socks and join us for 90s Nite! The 90s nostalgia music and drinks will be vibing throughout the lobby at the Friday, April 21st performance of “As You Like It."
