    This summer’s musical version of 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. Our new musical adaptation features original music and lyrics by celebrated Bay Area composers The Kilbanes and Resident Artist Phil Wong.

    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 1 :30 on weekends only and provides a lively introduction to As You Like It that's fun for all ages!
