Join Rosalind, Orlando, Celia, and Touchstone as they escape to the forest of Arden in Shakespeare’s classic comedy focusing on love, loss and redemption. With a hilarious love triangle, mistaken identities and an exciting wrestling match, this production is a sure delight for all ages. Featuring one of Shakespeare’s strongest heroines, thought provoking family dynamics and the famous “All the world’s a stage…” speech, As You Like It is a perfect way to introduce students to Shakespeare’s works, as well as further the exploration with those already familiar. 

Stephen Muterspaugh (director of the 2012-13 tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as well as the 2013-14 tour of Julius Caesar) returns to direct this 55-minute show, performed in Shakespeare’s original text. 

As always, our touring production travels with a cast of professional actors in costume, with set, props, and recorded music. At the conclusion of the show they will stay to take questions from the audience. Included are THREE WEEKS OF ONE-HOUR LESSON PLANS, written especially for teachers and indexed to state standards. These guides have been acclaimed as valuable resources in readily facilitating an enhanced understanding of the plot, themes, character motives, and language found in Shakespeare’s writing.

Shakespeare is a poet as well as a playwright, and much of his information is conveyed through visual imagery and live performance. Don’t miss this thoroughly affordable opportunity to have his text come to life at YOUR location! If you are interested in having Shakespeare on Tour visit your school, please view our pricing and staging requirements.

About Shakespeare on Tour

For over 25 years Shakespeare On Tour has traveled across the state bringing a fifty-five minute version of a Shakespeare play to thousands of students. Each fall and spring our touring troupe of actors arrive at hundreds of venues, bringing sets, props, costumes, and music to enliven their performance. The production is professionally directed and suitable for elementary students through adults. The tour visits more schools than any other theater group in the state; this year alone, the tour will present more than 200 performances to over 20,000 children!

Schools also receive a curriculum guide written by professional educators, with lesson plans designed to help teachers prepare their students to more fully appreciate the performance.
