Jul 20 - Aug 10: AS YOU LIKE IT, Shadows & Dreams

One of my most memorable Sunday afternoons last summer was watching a freewheeling, hilarious Midsummer Night's Dream in New Westminster's glorious Queen's Park, with PT pals Frank Nickel, Kerri Norris, Steven Elcheshen and Mark Vandenberg.  This year, Laura Van Dyke joins the craziness - a TWU Theatre grad  who played Benjamin in REMNANTS and Gay Wellington in YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, and - now as a PT apprentice - will be seen in PT's season opener, MOURNING DOVE, this October.  

Shadows and Dreams Theatre Company Presents

As You Like It
William Shakespeare

Shadows and Dreams Theatre Company is back after last years successful productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Hamlet with another of the Shakespeare's timeless comedies. Duchess Senior has been usurped of her throne by her sister, Duchess Frederica, and has fled to the Forest of Ardenne, where she lives like Robin Hood with a band of loyal followers. Her daughter Rosalind remains at court because of her close relationship with her cousin Celia. Rosalind falls in love with Orlando. But before the two can begin a relationship Rosalind is banished and ends up disguised as a man in a nearby forest. There she tests the faith of her beloved (and also banished) Orlando who can't recognize her in her shepherd's disguise. Shepherds, fools and clowns romp through the forest sparring about love, melancholy in this family friendly production. Directed by Kerri Norris.
