As You Like It

A Canadian Stage production

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Anand Rajaram

Romantic, hilarious, and adventuresome, As You Like It marks Shakespeare’s return to the High Park stage

A romantic comedy for the ages comes vividly to life in High Park. After Rosalind and her cousin Celia escape the Duke’s court, they flee in disguise to the fantastical Forest of Arden. But who (and what!) they find there are beyond their wildest dreams. Featuring new music by Serena Ryder, Kiran Ahluwalia, and Maryem Toller, along with production design by Shadowland Theatre, As You Like It is an epic return to the beloved Toronto tradition of Shakespeare in High Park. Shakespeare’s brilliantly funny play is directed by Anand Rajaram, and brought to life by a wonderfully lovable cast of actors and comedians.
