Mount Holyoke College Department of Film Media Theatre Presents: “As You Like It” by William Shakespeare



Rooke Theater, Mount Holyoke College (50 College St., South Hadley MA)

The Mount Holyoke College Department of Film Media Theater ends the 2023-24 season with an immersive experience celebrating the classic tale by William Shakespeare, “As You Like It.”

Join us for one of Shakespeare’s most endearing comedies where we escape to the Forest of Arden with an enjoyable cast of characters including a jester in motley, a melancholy lord, a cross-dressed maid, a lovestruck shepherd, a banished duke, and many more. When the court meets the country, hijinks ensue all in pursuit of the most noble of emotions - LOVE.

“Our production is set in Elizabethan England complete with our own version of The Globe Theater (The Rooke), Elizabethan costumes and, in collaboration with the Five College Early Music Ensemble, songs and music to set the mood. We hope you will step back back in time with us for an evening of fun and frolic as we retell this exuberant classic.” - Director, Noah Ilya-Alexis Tuleja

This production is directed by Mount Holyoke College’s Department of Film Media Theater Chair, Noah Ilya-Alexis Tuleja. Set Design by Vannessa James, Costume Design by Jensen Glick & Maggie Brown ‘24, Lighting Design by Julia Keeling ‘24, and Sound Design by Lara Dubin.
