Shakespeare at Winedale

As You Like It performed by the Shakespeare at Winedale Summer Class

Thu, July 20, 2017 | Winedale Historical Center

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Shakespeare at Winedale’s 2017 Summer Class takes the stage this July with performances of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, Antony and Cleopatra, and King Lear.

“This will be an epic season for Shakespeare at Winedale,” said program director James Loehlin, Shakespeare at Winedale Regents Professor of English and University Distinguished Teaching Professor. “We are performing three of Shakespeare’s very greatest plays.  As You Like It is the perfect Winedale comedy, with its atmosphere of pastoral and celebration.  King Lear, a soul-shaking tragedy, is perhaps Shakespeare’s highest achievement.  And Antony and Cleopatra is an epic romance filled with soaring poetry and world-changing events."

As You Like It follows the intrepid Rosalind through the Forest of Arden, as love notes, mistaken identity, music, and laughter enliven her quest for her father and her true love, Orlando. This pastoral favorite considers what a world of constancy, love, and reconciliation can look like when it is beset with injustice, jealousy, and fear.

Performances are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30pm, with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students as well as UT faculty and staff. Patrons can purchase tickets online through the Shakespeare at Winedale website, or by calling (512) 471-4726.
