Rice University Theatre will present William Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy “As You Like It” at Hamman Hall, 6100 Main St. Showtimes run Oct. 11, 12 and 17-19 at 8 p.m., with a matinee Oct. 13 at 3 p.m.
Follow our heroine, Rosalind, as she and her cousin, Celia, run away from the court of her usurping uncle in search of love and happiness in the Forest of Arden. In order to escape notice, Rosalind dresses like a boy, only to discover her true love, Orlando, has also fled into the Forest. In this mixed-up world, anything can happen—and in the end, love does indeed conquer all.
The production will be directed by Christina Keefe, head of the Rice Theatre Program, assisted by Alan Brincks. Keefe’s recent directing credits include Rice’s productions of “She Kills Monsters” and “Proof.” Brincks is a performer and educator who has worked with the Alley Theatre, Main Street Theater, Nebraska Shakespeare Festival and Virginia Stage Company.
