As You Like It

As You Like It

By William Shakespeare

February 17 – 25, 2023

Shakespeare takes us out of place and time to Arden, a forest of imagination, self-discovery, and renewal. With As You Like It, the Bard gleefully abandons all historical and geographical accuracy to challenge notions of gender and class. “All the world’s a stage” – until it’s time to go home!

Our production of As You Like It will last 2 hours, include one 15-minute intermission.

Into the Woods

Into the Woods

Book by James Lapine; Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

April 21 - 29, 2023

Almost in response to As You Like It’s love-soaked mystical forest of Arden, Sondheim and Lapine will take you back Into the Woods to set things straight! This achingly beautiful musical weaves together well-known fairy tale characters and upends Happily Ever After.

The Department of Theatre and Dance will co-produce Into the Woods with the Department of Music.

Please note that while Into the Woods does feature fairy tale characters, it contains mature themes and language.
