Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ opens April 6


The Texas State University Department of Theatre and Dance presents William Shakespeare’s beloved comedy As You Like It April 6-10 and 13-17 on the main stage of the Theatre Center. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. April 6-9 and 13-16, with 2 p.m. matinees April 10 and 17.

Directed by Chuck Ney, As You Like It tells the story of Rosalind, a banished young woman in search of her father, the deposed Duke. Disguised as a boy, she meets a young man escaping unfair treatment at the hands of his brother, as well as a band of dissenters and musicians living in exile. All discover the joy of love, friendship and forgiveness in the Forest of Arden, but not without disguises, clowning, music, and love at first sight.  Featuring original music by Christopher Fordinal and set in modern day, this production speaks to the contemporary world.

Admission is $10 for the general public, $7 for students with a valid Texas State I.D. For more information, contact (512) 245-2147.
