High Point Public Library has partnered with a local performing arts group to bring Shakespeare to the Library. Shared Radiance Performing Arts Company will be performing Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” throughout the building and the plaza Saturday, October 6 at 5 p.m. Experience Shakespeare's “As You Like It” as you follow the actors on a frolicking 1960s romp through the High Point Public Library and Plaza. Be prepared to move from space to space and become a part of the mingling of Shakespeare's world and the music, styles and vibe of the late 1960s counter culture movement. You are invited to wear and rock your best 1960s look.
Comfortable shoes are a must; bring a folding chair or towel for options for sitting in various locations; be prepared to travel on foot with the actors. Bring an umbrella; if persistent rain, show will move indoors.
The performance is produced by Shared Radiance Performing Arts Company and directed by Sherri Raeford. Admission is free and it is open to the public. This event is sponsored by the High Point Friends of the Library.
