As You Like It

As You Like It by William Shakespeare

One of Shakespeare’s great comedies, As You Like It features the heroine, Rosalind, daughter of the banished Duke Senior.  She falls in love with Orlando, the disinherited son of one of the Duke’s friends but is banished from the court by a usurper. While traveling in exile through the Forest of Arden, she takes on the appearance of a boy accompanied by her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone. Things are complicated when Phoebe, a forester, falls in love with the disguised Rosalind and Orlando shows up.

Themes of love, life and death, the natural world, beauty and goodness are reflected in this touching comedy.

The hallmark of Cornerstone is the high quality of acting. The cast will be rounded out by talented musicians in this magical and musical production!
