As You Like It

Jul 18-20


Actors Theatre of Missouri is proud to present William Shakespeare's "As You Like It" as part of their annual Shakespeare at the Columns series. Performances will be July 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20 at 7:00 p.m. nightly. Seating begins at 6:30. Admission is free, but donations are gladly accepted to offset the cost of bringing free Shakespeare to Springfield. Performances are at the Springfield Art Museum's outdoor amphitheatre. In case of inclement weather, the show will move indoors.

This is our seventh annual (yes, SEVEN years) production in association with the Springfield Art Museum. This year's "As You Like It" takes you to the Great Depression, and the antics of lovers and clowns of a circus carnival sheltering in the Forest of Arden. Laugh along with Rosalind as she tries to hide her true feelings from the stalwart, but somewhat dim, Orlando. Meet Duke Senior and his merry band of carnival performers as they find respite in the forest. Sing along with them as they bring happiness into their exile. And, of course, see the happy ending.

Bring the family, a picnic supper (or patronize our food truck partners), and some lawn chairs or blankets. We promise a good time.

This information has been gathered from reliable sources, but it is still possible that all information may not be accurate. In addition, events are occasionally canceled, rescheduled, or postponed for a variety of reasons, and the SCVB is not always aware of these changes.

It is recommended that participants verify information with the event organizer prior to attending or purchasing event tickets.
