Everyone is more than they seem!
ORLANDO: Yes, just.
JAQUES: I do not like her name.
ORLANDO: There was no thought of pleasing you when she was christened.
-As You Like It, William Shakespeare
Do you remember when you found your people?
In Shakespeare's gender-bending comedy, adaptable and resilient Rosalind must leave everything she knows behind to find her true family. Disguised as a boy named Ganymede, she and her cousin Celia, along with the affable jester Touchstone, journey through the forests of Arden, meeting both long-lost and newfound friends. Realizing that family is not just those related by blood, Rosalind sheds her identity and transforms her relationships, discovering who she is along the way.
As You Like It runs 2 hours, 30 minutes with a 15-minute intermission. The performance uses fog effects, the depiction of violence including a prop knife, and has a loud sound cue near the end of the first act.
