As You Like It

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Daryl Cloran

February 27 to March 24, 2024
Max Bell Theatre (Arts Commons)

The Bard Meets The Beatles in a Mashed-Up Musical
It’s the 1960s, and things are getting groovy in the Forest of Arden. Shakespeare’s classic comedy of love and mistaken identity is given new life in this high-spirited adaptation featuring the music of The Beatles. When Rosalind is banished from court, she disguises herself as a man and escapes to the forest. There, she meets the similarly-banished Orlando, who happens to be in love with her, but cannot see through her disguise. From there, things get increasingly tangled as the play explores love and gender roles, infused with the music of the “Fab Four.”

This production is made possible by the generous support of The Al Osten & Buddy Victor Legacy Fund.

The true story of the woman behind the American dime
Few know of Selma Burke, the Black American sculptor who played a major role in the Harlem Renaissance movement of the 1920s and 30s. Among her works is a bas-relief plaque of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, which is now widely accepted to be the basis for the design on the American dime, and something for which she never received credit within her lifetime. A stirring play about the importance of art, courage, romance, and justice, Burke’s rarely-told story is brought to life in this world premiere by Calgary playwrights Maria Crooks and Caroline Russell-King.

Presented in partnership with Alberta Theatre Projects.
