Sherri Raeford of Shared Radiance Theatre Company is pleased to announce her latest Shakespearian production, “As You Like It.” As a promenade-style theatre, audience members will follow the actors from scene to scene on Oct. 13 and 14 at Hanging Rock State Park. Both performances will be at 2 p.m.
Set in the contrasting worlds of the East and West coasts of the 1960s, this hippie-dippy, trippin’, rockin’ take on Shakespeare’s hilarious cross-dressing comedy is sure to please. Between the WWE style wrestling, stage combat, hilarity, and music, Raeford’s fantastic trip back in time to the Haight-Ashbury era reminds the audience that everyone can be “Happy together!” Raeford has successfully intertwined snippets of the best music of the late ‘60s with moments of Shakespeare’s timeless themes.
Please bring comfortable walking shoes and a chair to the performance, which begins at the Hanging Rock State Park Visitors Center, travels to the upper cascades and back.
