"Swear by your beards that I am a knave!"
Rosalind (Georgia Cerisano) and Touchstone (Larry Finkel)
"All the World's a stage," says the melancholy
Jacques in Act II of As You Like It, one of
Shakespeare's best-known and best-loved
comedies. The speech by Jacques (played by
Anthony Smitha) compares the world to a stage
and life to a play.
Director Maggie Mumford has put together a
highly talented group of Fauquier Community
Theatre (FCT) veterans and newcomers. "Though
the play is remembered for Rosalind's disguise as
a man, As You Like It features a whole cast of
"motley" characters who each get their moment to
be funny or profound," Maggie says.
As You Like It is a story of love and adventurous
journey toward new beginnings. Duke Senior
(Carolyn Cameron) had been banished to the
Forest of Arden by his brother Duke Frederick
(also Carolyn Cameron). Frederick then banishes
his niece Rosalind (Georgia Cerisano), who has
grown close with his daughter, Celia (Mickalei
Lindquist) and is enamored with Orlando (Peter
Mumford).
Set up to be killed by hateful older brother Oliver
(Gregory Leggott), Orlando unexpectedly turns the
tables on wrestling professional Charles (Kevin
Stokker) and flees to the forest, where he meets up
with the exiled duke and other wanderers, including
Rosalind and Celia, who are now taking on the
male personas Ganymede and Aliena.
The Fauquier Community Theatre presents
Shakespeare's
As You Like It
Will Orlando, who has left love poems for Rosalind
throughout the forest, realize that Ganymede, now
coaching him on winning Rosalind, is actually
Rosalind herself? Will Touchstone (Larry Finkel)
find happiness with Audrey (Stacie Duvall)? Will the
shepherd Silvius (Jack Tessier) marry shepherdess
Phoebe (Julia Downes)? Come find out at FCT's
production of Shakespeare's As You Like It.
Performances will be at the Theatre at Vint Hill,
4225 Aiken Drive in Warrenton on Fridays and
Saturdays, March 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, and 23 at 7:30
