Austin Shakespeare presents Young Shakespeare's As You Like It
For its 9th season, Young Shakespeare, Austin Shakespeare’s teen company, will transform Richard Garriott de Cayeux’s outdoor Curtain Theater into the Forest of Arden for a production of the romantic comedy As You Like It. When the fascinating heroine Rosalind is banished to a magical forest - disguised as a boy and with her cousin in tow - she seeks only refuge from her uncle’s wrath. Her unfortunate exile is transformed into a charming adventure when she encounters other expatriates, quick-tongued fools, and the handsome, lovesick Orlando.
As You Like It has everything you love about Shakespeare: mistaken identities, characters in love with the "wrong" person, peril, chance encounters and, of course, a wedding.
