Rosalind, having fallen in love with the self-exiled Orlando, is banished and flees to the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone. Rosalind disguises herself as Ganymede, a young man, and upon encountering Orlando, persuades him to let her cure him of his love for Rosalind. There’s wit, silliness, a wrestling match, music, and some of Shakespeare’s most iconic writing (“All the world’s a stage…”).
Tickets $10 at the door or online.
