Coming Soon: As You Like It!

Shakespeare's comedy about sibling rivalry, running off to the forest to find yourself, and cross-dressing. A Renaissance style performance with only 6 rehearsals, no directors or designers, just like Shakespeare's troupe would have done it.

Performances Saturdays and Sundays in November at 2pm at Cornservatory 4210 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60618

Tickets to shows will be $20 for adults and $5 for students and seniors
