William Shakespeare does it again with his age old classic, As You Like It. Director Charlie Mitchell brings this romantic comedy about the twists and turns of fate into modern times, reflecting the timelessness of love. This story will be sure to put you on the edge of your seat as you watch Rosalind and Orlando fall for one another in the most comedic and outlandish of ways. Banished from court, Rosalind takes it upon herself to be the ruler of her own fate and to convince Orlando to fall in love with her. Concealing her true identity to pass as a local shepherd, Rosalind flees to the forest only to find Orlando in hiding as well, wary of his brother’s plan to murder him. Still in disguise, she persuades Orlando to woo her as if she was his intended. Full of court politics, cross dressing, and a group wedding, this quirky tale will make you swoon and laugh all in the same breath. Will Rosalind get her happily ever after? The will-they won’t-they tale promises to be a warmhearted adventure filled with laughter, love, and the pursuit of happiness against all odds.
