Join Rosalind, one of Shakespeare’s most savvy and strong heroines as she flees to the Forest of Arden with her comedic sidekicks to find her exiled father, Duke Senior.  But what dangers await her in the woods? Come find out as Shake on the Lake puts its fast, fun, and physical-style on display in this comedy about love, longing, nature, cross-dressing, mistaken identity, music, and….wrestling. This ninety-minute musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It is not to be missed.

About Shake on the Lake

Shake on the Lake started in 2012 with one show in one location and now tours to eight counties in Western New York. Founder and theatre artist Josh Rice believed that his hometown of Perry, New York deserved great theatre on Silver Lake. He convened a company with actors from throughout the country to perform in residency at the historic Silver Lake Institute. Today that collaborative team is Shake on the Lake. Presenting fast, fun, physical performances, Shake on the Lake has crafted an artistic style “In the Spirit of Shakespeare” – accessible classics that incorporate elements of live music, improvisation, physical theatre, stage combat, and puppetry. Growing from one show and one venue, Shake on the Lake has two seasons: summer and winter. The summer consists of a outdoor touring show of a Shakespeare Classic and other guest artists and prototype shows – including the development of Harvest Festival. The winter season is a performances of a holiday classic at Theatre@37 in historic downtown Perry, New York.
