"As You Like It" is a pastoral comedy featuring one of Shakespeare's most famous and oft-quoted speeches, "All the world's a stage", and is the origin of the phrase "too much of a good thing". This audience favourite follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia and Touchstone the court jester, to find safety and eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden.

Catch one of two professional performances by the Humber River Shakespeare Company outdoors under a marquee tent in the stone ruins of the Annex courtyard on Friday July 19 or Saturday July 20 at 7:00 pm. Advance tickets available online at the HRSC website.

Pre-theatre dinner will be available from 5:00pm by Cuisine-Art 2013 Participants Shaw's Creek Cafe and La Courtoise.
