As You Like It

About This Show

Midsommer Flight announces its fifth season presenting free Shakespeare productions, returning to Chicago parks this summer with the delightful comedy As You Like It. All performances will be presented free of charge (donations gratefully accepted). In addition, live music will be presented 30 minutes prior to each performance. Audiences are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic to enjoy this free programming.

Midsommer Flight’s As You Like It features a cast of 16 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?
