As You Like It follows the lively exploits of banished Rosalind and her quest for true love amid the schemes of two warring brothers. In the idyllic Forest of Arden, Rosalind, disguised as a gentleman farmer, stumbles upon an extraordinary assemblage of characters, including a fool, a malcontent traveler, her own exiled father, and the cast out young man she loves. Astutely funny, As You Like It runs the gamut of the comedic canon, combining cross-dressing and slapstick with gentle satire and sparkling, witty conversation.
With the added twist of a modern day setting, the Le Moyne College production of As You Like It will be under the direction of Steven Braddock. Scenery and lights will be designed by Karel Blakeley and costumes designed by Meggan Camp.
Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and $4 for students and the Le Moyne community. For additional information and ticket reservations, please call the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts at (315) 445-4523 or visit www.lemoyne.edu/vpa.
