“As You Like It,” directed by Kari-Anne Innes, is coming this weekend to Shakespeare in the Park at Central Park in Valparaiso! Pictured left to right are Soryn Richter as Orlando, Jakob Innes as Rosalind, Amanda Saqui as Phebe and standing above is Whitney Perish as Celia. In Shakespeare’s day, all the parts were played by men since women were not allowed on stage.
The director has employed gender-blind casting as a nod to this tradition as well as acknowledgment of the current times. The production has been set in modern day but uses the classic language of Shakespeare. Performances are July 8 & 9, 2022 beginning at dusk.
The Chicago Street Teen Workshop will do a yard show prior to the performance and food vendors will be on site and open by 6PM. Come early and grab some fabulous food and treats. This year’s featured food vendor is The Lunch Box Food Truck. Chicago Street bartenders will be on hand to dispense beer and wine
Complete with silliness, romance, wit and memorable characters, audiences will delight at this theatrical treasure.
