The Shakespeare Factory Players

As You Like It

“All the world’s a stage”…man…

The Shakespeare Factory Players’ (SFP) inventive production finds Shakespeare’s classic characters frolicking in a Forest of Arden that’s more Hippie Commune than Globe Theater!  Why choose the free love vibe of the 60s?  Well…
Orlando loves Rosalind (and isn’t afraid to say so with public displays of really bad poetry.)  Rosalind loves Orlando, but she’s dressed as a boy, so Phebe thinks she loves her/him(?).  Silvius loves Phoebe (but no one’s really sure why) and Touchstone loves Audrey, who also loves him, but where does that leave William who loves her?  Did we mention Celia ends up in love with Oliver (who’s sort of the bad guy) while Duke Senior loves the woods, and Jaques just loves to be melancholy?
Confused?  You won’t be!  Thanks to SFP’s signature fun, fast paced, and family friendly style, audiences of all ages will be relishing the adventure, reveling in Shakespeare’s language, and even singing along to more than a dozen folk favorites with the cast.
The Ensemble invites you to come a half hour early, bring a picnic and an instrument and join in our Preshow Jam Session.  Preshow activities for kids include free face painting, crafts, and acting exercises.

Outdoor Performances are FREE (donations accepted – $10/adult suggested.)
