2016 Spring Play:
"As You Like It"
written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Dr. Gregory Thorson
"As You Like It" follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees
persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find
safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they
encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveler
Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches—such as "All
the world's a stage". The play explores important
themes such as, love and nature, in a charming manner.
