Come join Midsommer Flight outside in the parks again this summer with Shakespeare’s delightful comedy As You Like It. The play features a cast of 15 and original music. When Rosalind is banished by the evil Duke, she and her cousin Celia set out to the Forest of Arden to make a new life, disguised for safety as a brother and sister. As fate would have it, Orlando, whom Rosalind loves, also flees the evil Duke to the Forest of Arden. But disguised as a boy, Rosalind cannot reveal herself to him. Will true love win out? With joyful music, hilarious comedy, and some of the most famous lines ever penned by Shakespeare, As You Like It is sure to delight audiences this summer.

Live music will begin a half hour prior to each performance. Come early and bring a picnic! All performances are FREE and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
