PVCC Theatre presents As You Like It A Musical Adaptation of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It Adapted by Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery Music and Lyrics by Shaina Taub
Join PVCC Theatre for a ravishing new folk-pop adaptation of William Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy. Named one of The New York Times’ “Best Shows of 2017,” As You Like It is an immersive, dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise.
Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place of transformation, where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find community and acceptance under the stars.
Brad Stoller and Shelley Cole, who previously joined forces in PVCC Theatre’s The Rocky Horror Show (2015), Cabaret (2017) and West Side Story (2018), come together again with community members, professional actors and students to bring this glorious and wise story of self-discovery to the Main Stage. The show features special appearances by CLAW (Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers), the PVCC Chorus and local Kathak (Indian Dance), African, and belly dancers.
