Join our CAST in this family-friendly, non-musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s beloved comedy As You Like It.

Young Rosalind and Orlando both have been banished from town and lost their fortunes. Through a series of mishaps and one disguise gone awry, their family and friends help the couple find true happiness in the mysterious—and often hilarious—Forest of Arden!

Participants will work on both performance and technical theatre (props, sets, costumes, and more), make friends, develop confidence, and have a great time!
