University Theatre Presents As You Like It'
April 17, 2009 | The University of Wisconsin-River Falls theatre department will present its last play of the academic year, As You Like It, which opens on April 30, and runs May 1, 2, 7, 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Blanche Davis Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building. There will be a matinee with limited seating May 6 at 9:30 a.m.
This play is a testimonial to the transformative power of love and the endurance of the human spirit. It examines the cruelties and corruption of court life and gleefully pokes holes in one of humankind's greatest artifices: the conventions of romantic love. It is easy to understand and very joyous, said Meg Swanson, director and theater professor.
The show is a romantic comedy. It is my personal feeling that every student should experience Shakespeare at least once in their life, whether it's participating or watching, said Swanson.
This will be a highly accessible production presented by a lively and talented young cast of actors drawn from diverse university departments, said Swanson. The actors in this play are terrific and they work very well together.
For ticket information contact the University Box Office at 715-425-3114. The box office is open weekdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and an hour prior to performances. Tickets are $5 for students/seniors and $8 for adults.
