As You Like It, directed by Charlie Sexton

May 16.17.18 @ 7:30 +  May 10.11 @ 2:00
The plucky Rosalind, her friend Celia, and their jester run off to an Arcadian wilderness full of exiles, lovelorn princes, and dullards. Love, disguise, and mischief carry the day even as the usurper Duke marches in pursuit.

Richard II, directed by J. Barrett Cooper

May @ 7:30  + May 17 @ 2:00
Returning from war in Ireland, the overconfident king discovers an opportunistic rival has raised an army to reclaim a wrongly seized inheritance. Can Richard’s rule–and his very life–survive the disgrace of an unchecked challenge to his God-given authority?

Pericles, directed by Julane Havens

May @ 7:30  +  May 18 @ 2:00
A Greek prince fleeing an evil king sails the seas in this tale of triumphant rescues, beautiful maidens, and great personal tragedy. Will determination, wit, and divine intervention see the prince’s family restored to him?
