Shake on the Lake Tour Launch: “As You Like It” @ The Wadsworth Homestead
Jul 25 @ 6:30 pm

Our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY of opening the tour at the historic The Wadsworth Homestead!!

“All the world’s a stage,” and Shake on the Lake is poised to bring the “players with exits and entrances,” playing “many parts,” as they bring Shakespeare’s most musical comedy, AS YOU LIKE IT, on tour across Western New York this summer.

AS YOU LIKE IT follows the story of Rosalind, one of Shakespeare’s most savvy and strong protagonists, as she faces an uncertain future after the exile of her royal father by her uncle, the newly installed Duke Frederick. Buoyed by her loving cousin, Celia, and their rascally clown, Touchstone, Rosalind makes the best of her situation, and by chance, catches the eye of a brave young man, Orlando. After Orlando’s bests the Duke’s champion in a wrestling match, both Orlando and Rosalind must flee to the Forest of Arden to escape the eyre of Duke Frederick, as well as Orlando’s jealous brother, Oliver. The two fear they will never see one another again, not knowing the magic and romance that awaits them in the forest.

Come find out as Shake on the Lake puts it’s fast, fun, and physical-style on display in this comedy about love, longing, nature, cross-dressing, mistaken identity, music, and….wrestling. All of Western New York is our stage in this ninety-minute musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT.
