As You Like It -- Mustache Night in the Park
We're conspiring to set a record for MOST PEOPLE ATTENDING A THEATRICAL EVENT WEARING FAKE MUSTACHES, Friday, June 21, in Southmoreland Park; 8:00 p.m. showtime. Our production, As You Like It, features a woman, Rosalind, who travels to the Forest of Arden, disguised as a man. You can join in the fun when you donate at the gate and get YOUR fake mustache. Prior to the show we'll have everyone put on their DISGUISES for a group photo AND set a record! Make your plans to join us for this groovy, 1967 SUMMER OF LOVE production!
As You Like It - 21st season production
Info and LINK TO THE CAST
The Festival will present As You Like It in Southmoreland Park, June 18 - July 7, 2013. The production will play Tuesday - Sunday evenings at 8:00 p.m. and also on Monday, July 1. NO SHOW July 4. This delightful pastoral comedy will bring our park to life as our heroine Rosalind journeys to the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and her philosophical Fool, Touchstone. The Forest provides a safe place for the exiled Duke and his entourage, the dispossesed Orlando and for Rosalind and her companions. In the wilds, the wildest adventures occur. This story has everything we love about Shakespeare's comedies; mistaken identity, madness and mayhem. And of course, LOVE. Mark your calendars for the Festival's 21st season production.
