We're working on developing a tour - both in NYC for schools and out into other parts of the country and beyond!
WHAT IS THIS SHOW, exactly?
A two-woman adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, As We Like It features music, puppetry, dance and wrestling. Celia and Rosalind devise sports and play pretend. They take on all the roles, including themselves, as they work through love and their Daddy issues. The text is exclusively Shakespeare’s but the show belongs to Rosalind and Celia. These debutantes play games.

THE STORY SO FAR:
We developed the show slowly over many months (in SECRET!) and with the support of Anonymous, Jim Barnes, Kathleen Corrigan + Phil Everson, Robert Couturier, Bill Davis, John Kirby, Pamela Monk, Andy Moysenko, Donna Shaunesey, Charles and Phyllis Shaunesey, Colin Stokes, Randy Symank and Katrina Toshiko Grigg-Saito. None of these people had the slightest idea WHAT they were supporting, but they did it anyway and we're very grateful for their faith in us.
We had an intensive development process, then workshopped the show at the Chicago and Wilmington Fringe Festivals. Now we need some help getting the show Beyond.
Your donations will get us marketing materials, help us get out of town, sustain us while we're there, publicize the show and document it.
If you'd prefer to donate off-line, you can send checks payable to Messenger Theatre Company.
