For the 37th season of Free Shakespeare in the Park, SF Shakespeare Festival presents a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's classic comedy As You Like It. The show features features original music and lyrics, performed by the cast and composed by celebrated Bay Area musicians The Kilbanes and Resident Artist Phil Wong.
As You Like It asks the questions “What does it mean to go ‘into the woods’ in our world today? What might it mean in the near future?” Just after Rosalind and Orlando meet and fall for each other, they’re both exiled from the autocratic Court to the Forest of Arden – with Rosalind in disguise as the boy Ganymede. Despite the challenges of life in the woods, they find new friends and allies and fall in love all over again.
The show is performed on the park-like grounds of historic Sequoia High School, 1201 Brewster Ave (@ Broadway) in Redwood City. It plays August 10-25 on Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 4pm.
Come early to get a good spot and learn more about As You Like It at our 15-minute Green Show. A Great Wreck-oning plays at 6:30 on Saturdays and 3:30 on Sundays and provides a lively introduction to As You Like It that's fun for all ages!
Bring your family, friends, a blanket, and a picnic to enjoy professional theater at no charge in a beautiful park setting!
