You Will Like It!!!


Shakespeare Academy Presents

Outdoor Production of As You Like It
Wednesday, August 25th at 6 p.m.

William Shakespeare’s comedy, As You Like It, will be produced by artists in residence under the Shakespeare Academy at Stratford in a reimagined outdoor workshop edition titled As We Like It!!!

As the eighth installment of the summer Riverside Phoenix Summer Residency program, the Shakespeare Academy welcomes back 2014 alumna, Olivia Gregorich, to helm this innovative workshop production along with an ensemble of nine theatre artists.

As We Like It will be performed on Wednesday, August 25 at 6pm. The show will run about 70 minutes without an intermission. The production will be located in the American Shakespeare State Park, and audience members are required to bring their own portable seating.

The project features three moments in which the audience will be asked to relocate. The audience is encouraged to leave large bags at home and come prepared to walk a short distance.

Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford is a six-week residential summer theater program for college-age actors that uniquely combines rigorous training, ensemble collaboration, and the opportunity to rehearse and perform two Shakespeare plays in repertory. Each year we select a fourteen-member ensemble from around the U.S and abroad, to train and perform together on the property that once housed the legendary American Shakespeare Festival Theater.
