Enjoy Shakespeare under the stars
As part of the upcoming SummerSalt Festival (23 Jan-21 Feb 2015) Australia's largest independent theatre company, the Australian Shakespeare Company (ASC) has announced
a colourful new production of the satirical musical comedy As You Like It.

The Royal Botanic Gardens is set to be transformed from December 30, 2014 until 14 March 2015, into a Shakespearian festival of fantastical fun. Before the show, guests can explore the garden Love Letter Labyrinth, a meandering maze into the depths of the gardens, and the Shakespeare Hub, a pop up bar of naughty and nice delights.

The open-air theatre will be the 26th Shakespeare Under the Stars in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens.

As You Like It, sees Shakespeare's strongest female character Rosalind lead a bewildered journey of tangled hearts through the Forest of Arden. Four couples intertwine themselves in love disguised, unrequited, lustful and impulsive. After much confusion they finally arrive to find a love that celebrates the human spirit and joy in their new found world.
