The Mauldin Cultural Center presents another installment of MCC Shakes! Directed by Drew Kenyon, our “Shakespeare in the Park” series takes place in our outdoor amphitheater on April 22 – 24, 2022, with the production of As You Like It. Bring your lawn chairs and come enjoy this Shakespeare classic!
A classic Shakespearean comedy, As You Like It follows its heroine, Rosalind, as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court. Accompanied by her cousin Celia, Rosalind finds safety and, eventually, love in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, the two encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveler Jacques who speaks many of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches (such as “All the world’s a stage”, “too much of a good thing” and “A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest”).
