Shakespeare tackles gender fluidity with comic gusto and director adaptor David Fuller embraces that in this romantic romp set in modern times. Meet some of the Bard’s most famous characters and speeches, including the guitar strumming melancholy Jaques (“All the world’s a stage”), the rapping jester Touchstone (who is joined by the puppet Audrey) and the most bountiful lead he ever wrote for a female, the cross dressing Rosalind. Performed by a vibrant professional cast, this production includes original music written expressly for it by award winning composer Jason Wynn and is perfect for the whole family. Join us for a 90 minute romp through the Forest of Arden. A good time is guaranteed by all!
