In “As You Like It,” comic twists and turns abound in the mythical Forest of Arden, where a disguised Rosalind seeks refuge after being wrongfully banished by her uncle. Her unfortunate exile is transformed into a charming adventure when she encounters some of Shakespeare’s most beloved characters—colorful fools, witty rustics and the lovesick Orlando. The story is a topsy-turvy journey into one of the most joyous worlds the Bard ever penned.

The show is being directed by Craig Rich, chair of CLC’s theatre department. For audition information, contact Rich at (847) 543-2567 or To stay current on CLC Theatre, visit the department’s Facebook page.
