All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

The University of Arkansas Department of Drama has one last show in the 2013-2014 season. They will be presenting one of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, “As You Like It,” at the University Theatre from April 18-27.

“As You Like It” features a cast of colorful characters who embark on a number of romantic adventures. This beloved comedy takes place in the Forest of Arden and is full of laughs as four couples juggle love, confusion, and one gender-bending disguise. The play is also the origin of such famous phrases as “all the world’s a stage and “too much of a good thing.”

The Department of Drama’s production is 90 minutes long and features music and dancing as part of the show. It is directed by Morgan Hicks, and the cast is made up of both graduate and undergraduate students. The scenic design is by guest designer Adam Miecielica, a University of Arkansas alumnus.

The Department of Drama encourages all those interested to come out and enjoy the show. Performances are at 8 p.m. April 18-19 and April 23-26 and at 2 p.m. April 20 and April 27. Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and University faculty and staff, $7 for children.University students with a valid university ID get free tickets for the Wednesday and Thursday performances and pay $3 for all other performances.
