Tickets are now on sale for Mayhem’s fabulous new production of the Shakespeare classic, As You Like It.  You can buy the tickets on line at:, and select your tickets.
For those not familiar with this particular Shakespeare comedy, As You Like It has all the hallmarks of a classic Shakespeare comedy featuring an array of fantastic characters, such as Touchstone the fool, and the ever melancholy Jaques, with his famous ‘All the World’s a Stage’ speech. Forced into exile from the court by his usurping brother, Duke Senior takes refuge in the Forest of Arden while his daughter, Rosalind remains at court as a companion to her cousin Celia. Masquerading as a boy, she embarks on a journey through the forest in search of her exiled father accompanied by Celia and Touchstone, the fool. Meanwhile, Orlando de Boys, kept in poverty by his brother Oliver since his father’s death, decides to take refuge in the forest with the exiled Duke. There he meets the disguised Rosalind and becomes entangled in a beguiling game of love and wit, with a dash of bad poetry thrown in for good measure.
