An outlawed Duke lives with his fellows in the Forest of Arden; a banished younger son (Orlando) joins him – fleeing his murderous older brother. Soon Rosalind – who is in love with Orlando – disguises herself as a man and flees to the forest as well to seek her true love. Set in an enchanting forest, with some of Shakespeare’s funniest clowns, sweetest songs and an Elizabethan version of the World Wrestling Federation As You Like It is a marvelous entertainment for the entire family. “All the world’s a stage…” JULIUS CAESAR July 13, 15, 19, 21, 27, 29, Aug. 2, 4, 10, 12 7:00 pm nightly outdoors on Market Square Shakespeare’s great political tragedy about power, assassination and civil war, is as current as the headlines from theMiddle East.
