Our Living City team has hit its stride this summer. With the help of dozens of amazing volunteers, we’ve distributed over 10,000 trees, knocked on thousands of doors, and given away loads of green infrastructure adaptations like splash guards and redirects. Now, we’re gearing up for an exciting September chalk full of events. Trust us, you won’t want to miss out!
This year, The Company of Adventurers has a wonderful treat in store for audiences: Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy As You Like It. This year’s show has some built-in surprises that you won’t want to miss. There is an intriguing entrance way leading in to the show that will engage you from the moment you step inside. (Arrive early and you’ll see what we mean!) This play is a fun one, so get ready for some hysterical moments of audience participation. It comes complete with a ridiculous wrestling match, some very bad poetry written by the love-struck Orlando, a court jester wandering in the woods, stubborn shepherdesses, an attack by a lion (in a forest in France), and a group of single-minded foresters who love to sing! Like all of our shows, this year’s production will appeal to people of all ages, bringing Shakespeare to life in ways that will make everyone a fan!
