Come one, come all to the 8th grade presentation of As You Like It by William Shakespeare. Join us for this love story wrapped in comedy as two young women are banished from their courtly life to the Forest of Arden where their own clever plan and a cast of characters show them that country life can offer more joy than they have known. The play features one of Shakespeare’s most famous and oft-quoted speeches, “All the world’s a stage,” and is the origin of the phrase “too much of a good thing.” The play remains a favourite among audiences and has been adapted for radio, film, and musical theatre. This play, running well over two hours and with a bawdy bent, is best for children sixth grade and up. Refreshments will be available during intermission. Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated as they will make our foray to the Four Corners area on our 8th grade trip possible. We are looking forward to sharing our story with you and your friends!
