As You Like It - Web Heading - ELYSE (1).jpg

When Rosalind is banished from the City, she disguises herself as a man to travel to the Country to the famed Forest of Arden, where all sorts of adventures await her. 

But falling in love may be the craziest adventure of them all.

"'All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players."

AS YOU LIKE IT is Shakespeare's spectacular celebration of love, in all its forms. Under the direction of Terri Brabon, Shakespeare Under the Stars continues to  bring together a stellar cast of North Queensland's best including Brendan O'Connor as Jaques and featuring the return home of Bridge Project alumni Elyse Phelan (WAAPA) & Jacob McCarthy (QUT).

So join us as we transform Queens Gardens into the magical Forest of Arden and celebrate everything that makes life in the country special.
