As You Like It

presented by Pepperdine Theatre Department

Friday, April 9–Sunday, April 11, 2021

directed by Hollace Starr

Young cousins Rosalind and Celia, the fool Touchstone, and the strapping Orlando escape the hostile court of Duke Fredrick to the idyllic forest of Arden. Among trees and brooks, the young lovers wander, wondering if their affections will remain unrequited. Older exiles of the court, also gathered in Arden, ask thornier questions: namely, what is life all about? Shakespeare's timeless tale about the education of the heart is full of music, humor, and romance. And in his heroine Rosalind, we experience Shakespeare's masterful wit in its most exquisite form.

Listen to a podcast interview with director Hollace Starr and student performer Leyla Dillig for a behind-the-scenes look at the production using the Spotify player below.
