Spend lunch with Shakespeare Friday, November 21, as the Illinois Shakespeare Festival Touring Company performs "As You Like It" at the Rend Lake College Theatre.
Hosted by the RLC Cultural Arts Committee, the performance will begin at noon and is expected to last 50 minutes. Theatre Instructor Tracey Webb described the play as "a condensed but extremely funny version" of the Bard’s classic.
"The troupe has been here before and they’re very exciting to watch," said Webb. "Also, this is a great opportunity for students to actually witness some Shakespearean Theatre." She added that English students who have been exposed to Shakespeare’s work will find the "actual enactment of his written language enlightening."
The performance is free and the public is welcome. When the theatre is full, the doors will be closed. For more information, contact Cathy Cross, Liberal Arts Division Administrative Assistant, at (618) 437-5321, Ext. 1263.
