AS YOU LIKE IT - General Entry - Free Shakespeare in the Park Information

Check back for information on free As You Like It tickets.

Public Works’ As You Like It is an immersive 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. Banished into the forest, they find community and acceptance under the stars.
