As You Like It by William Shakespeare
Shakespeareâ€™s most joyous play about love and life! When Rosalind is exiled from her uncleâ€™s court, she disguises herself as a boy named Ganymede and heads for the magical Forest of Arden. There, she finds a world of eccentric exiles and comical rustics. She also finds Orlando â€“ who under the guidance of Ganymede will learn to woo Rosalind.
Othello by William ShakespeareÂ Othello is at the top of his game: victorious in war and showered with honors. When his marriage to an extraordinary young woman meets with her fatherâ€™s condemnation, the evil Iago seizes the opportunity for revenge. Jealousy, deception, and intrigue mark this story of a decorated general driven to the extremes of rage by Shakespeareâ€™s most perfect villain.
The Rivals by Richard Brinsley SheridanWhen the word-mangling Mrs. Malaprop threatens to marry her niece to the highly â€œillegibleâ€ Captain Jack Absolute, the young girl rebels. Having read one-too-many romance novels, Miss Lydia Languish is intent on marrying the poor but handsome ensign whoâ€™s been courting her. The captain may have no choice but to challenge the ensign to a duel â€“ even though he and his rival are one and the same person. One of the funniest plays in the English language!
Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare
Two pairs of identical twins separated at birth â€“ each pair sharing the same names! When one pair stumbles unknowingly into the hometown of the other pair, confusion and mayhem follow! Shakespeareâ€™s silliest comedy is also the heart-warming story of families reuniting under the most unusual circumstances. This is the Theatre for Young Audiences production.
