    As You Like It

    Directed by Michael Osborn, The Baron's Men's spring show, As You Like It, features a wonderful mix of Sharers, Players, and new friends to the Troupe! Tickets to the show are now available at www.thebaronsmen.org/tickets.

    Join us weekends in April to follow our hero, Rosalind (Kate Clark), as she flees persecution in her aunt’s (Samantha Smith) court by transforming herself into the keen young gentleman Ganymede. Rosalind is accompanied by her cousin Celia (Jacquelyn Lies) to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of other memorable characters, most notably the melancholy traveler Jaques (Robert Deike), who speaks many of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches, such as “All the world’s a stage.”

    TBM newcomer Travis Hagan re-arranged the song "A Lover and His Lass" from the play, using elements of extant versions of the song. This historically appropriate tune, as well as many others, will be beautifully performed by a chorus of forest lords and ladies led by Gene Storie: Mary Menter, Erin O'Donnell, and Logan Smith.

    We are also hosting two special events during the run!

    Arden Academy: a full night of programming for educational groups on April 7. Arden Academy will feature a stage-fighting demonstration and a period-dancing lesson before the show, reserved seating, and a talkback with the cast and crew afterwards.

    Under the Greenwood Tree: a fun event that pairs the show with a delicious dinner under the branches of The Curtain Theatre’s historic pecan tree grove, with entertainment by members of the cast, on April 8.

    Performances are March 31, April 1, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22, at 8pm at:
