A joyful tale full of poetry, wit, romance, and humor, As You Like It takes us to the Forest of Arden where we follow Rosalind’s journey as she searches for family, place, and person. As You Like It appeals to both Shakespeare aficionados and newcomers of all ages with intrigue, romance, music, and comedy.
The Old Man and The Old Moon is a musical about a man who has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he or his wife can remember. When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty and routine, or love and adventure. He chooses the latter, which takes him on a sea-faring epic encompassing storms, battles, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all—change.
Door Shakespeare performs under the canopy of a magnificent maple tree on the shores of Lake Michigan in Björklunden, Baileys Harbor. Shows begin at 7:30, Monday through Friday, and 5:00 on Saturdays, from June 28 to August 26. As the sun sets, the stars come out, and you witness the final bow, you feel as though you have come to know the world around you a little better. Such is the magic of live theater when performed in an outdoor setting so enchanting that many in attendance come back year after year since Door Shakespeare’s inception in 1995.
