Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” a delightful romantic comedy, will be presented at Plymouth State College October 24-28 as a production of Plymouth State Theatre.
A favorite with audiences throughout the centuries, this fairy tale is a magical celebration of romance, passion and unity, pitting young love against the vanity of the court. It is the familiar story of exiled lovers reunited, of woodland meanderings, of mistaken identity and disguise and of political wrongs set right. This is a story rich in mythology, which deals with the transformation of souls from evil to good.
“As You Like It” is directed by Kevin Gardner, with set design by Matt Kizer, costume design by Angela Saddler, and lighting design by Stuart Crowell.
Performances are Wednesday through Friday, 8 p.m.; Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 4 p.m.
Tickets are $9 – 5 at the Silver Cultural Arts Center box office, 535-ARTS. Box office hours are Monday – Friday, noon – 6 p.m. If special arrangements are needed for persons with disabilities, please call in advance.
