While the Covid-19 pandemic prevented National Players from traveling the U.S. and finishing up our 71st tour here in Olney, that doesn't stop us from wanting to bring theatre to you. It's been a privilege for the Players to perform this show, along with The Diary of Anne Frank and Walk Two Moons, and we are blessed that we are able to release this recorded preview performance of As You Like It because making theatre more accessible is part of National Players' mission. To our presenters and audiences across the nation and at home here at Olney Theatre Center, thank you. Please enjoy the National Players Tour 71 production of As You Like It.
