As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Jason King Jones

Pay-what-you-can performances:

August 16 & 17 at 7:30pm

August 18 at 1:30 pm


Banished from the only home she’s ever known, Rosalind escapes to the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and their fool Touchstone. While disguised as a man, Rosalind meets fellow outcasts in the forest, including the dashing and lovesick Orlando. Determined to woo him, Rosalind persuades Orlando in her male disguise to win her heart. For only if Orlando loves her as a man will Rosalind know he truly loves her.

With a ten-person ensemble, National Players melds classic language with contemporary staging of Shakespeare’s imaginative tale about city folk venturing into the woods. A romantic comedy about girls, boys, losing oneself, and finding oneself again.

The Box Office opens for Pay-What-You-Can sales at 5pm  for 7:30 pm performances and noon for 1:30 pm performances. All purchases must be in-person and in cash. No phone or internet sales.
