Shakespeare's leafy tale of banishment, love and disguise is given a light-hearted and musical treatment by Folksy Theatre.

Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando. Banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy, calling herself Ganymede. She, her cousin Celia and jester Touchstone, travel to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. Meeting Orlando again in the forest, she devises an elaborate scheme to test his love and capture his heart, through the witty and mischievous façade of her disguise.

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players..."

This popular Shakespearian comedy about life and love, faith and death is filled with Folksy's touch of live music, bold characters, audience interaction and plenty of laughs. Bring along friends and family to enjoy this fun-filled production!
