In 1599 the first comedy performed by Shakespeare's company in the Globe Theatre was AS YOU LIKE IT. The Shorewood Drama department decided if it's good enough for Shakespeare, it's good enough for us! Shorewood H.S. presents As You Like It as our first play in our beautiful new theater.
"Love is merely a madness!" Love its many forms is the subject of AS YOU LIKE IT. When Rosalind and her father are banished from the court by her power-hungry uncle, she and her cousin Celia escape with the court jester to the woods. They meet an assortment of lovesick country folk, as well as Orlando, the man Rosalind fell in love with before their departure. Since Rosalind is disguised as a boy, she takes the opportunity to teach Orlando how to love her, faults and all. In true Shakespearean comic style, a host of clever fools play with the lovers until there is nothing to do, but be married...with the help of a Greek god.
