Shakespeare’s perennial crowd pleaser, this comedy includes mistaken identity, cross dressing, wrestling, fools, snakes, lions, oh my! Rosalind and her cousin Celia flee the dangerous court and travel into the mysterious Forest of Arden, kicking off a grand adventure that changes everyone involved. Good thing they brought their clown along for help! Travel along with Shakespeare’s band of country bumpkins, exiles and princesses for a journey of self-discovery and forgiveness. After all, "Can one desire too much of a good thing?"
