Description

Portland Shakespeare Project kicks off its inaugural season with As You Like It, William Shakespeare’s comedy about romance in the Forest of Arden.

Take a stroll in the Forest of Arden with some of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters in his dearly loved comedy As You Like It. In these dappled woods, reality shifts, confronts pretense and allows human yearning to find its true course.

Set in France to Mary Kadderly’s wistfully haunting original music, this romantic comedy peels away the layers of societal constraints to reveal each character’s authentic self.  

“__As You Like It__ is a comedy that turns on a dime to a visceral, erotic excursion into the shadow side of ourselves,” said director Michael Mendelson.  Mendelson is Portland Shakespeare Project’s artistic director, co-founder and an instructor.  __

As You Like It__ features Darius Pierce as Touchstone, Cristi Miles as Rosalind, Melisa Whitney as Celia, Jill Westerby as Jacques, Andy Lee-Hillstrom as Silvius, Dana Millican as Phoebe, Dave Bodin as Corin, Jake Street as Orlando, Tony St. Clair as Oliver, Tom Walton as Jaques De Boys and Charles, and Rhianna Walton as Audrey.

Original music for__ As You Like It __is composed by Portland’s noted singer and songwriter Mary Kadderly and played by accordionist KJ McElrath.
