SF Shakespeare presents As You Like It at Central Library

Berkeley, February 10– Berkeley Public Library welcomes the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival as they present the touring company’s production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It on Sunday, March 1, 2015, at 2:00pm at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge in the third floor Community Meeting Room.

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. As You Like It features one of Shakespeare’s strongest heroines, thought provoking family dynamics and the famous “All the world’s a stage…” speech. The 55-minute touring production presents a cast of five professional actors in costume, with set, props and recorded music. Following the performance is a question and answer session with the cast. For questions regarding this program, call 510-981-6241.
