Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival is one of Vancouver’s most unique events that brings the city together under those bright, white tents that locals are familiar with and tourists enjoy discovering! Bard on the Beach celebrates the opening of its 22nd season with the light-hearted romantic comedy As You Like It, directed by David Mackay. The play runs Tuesdays to Sundays June 2 to September 24, 2011 under the tents in Vanier Park.
In this merriest of comedies, Shakespeare draws on his signature themes of disguise, misplaced affections and pastoral passion. This is only the first show of many in their amazing lineup this year. See the entire season lineup here.The setting is ripe for romance when Rosalind, daughter of the banished Duke, runs away in disguise with her cousin Celia to the Forest of Arden. There they meet a pair of feuding brothers and Rosalind, who is masquerading as a young man, finds herself uniquely poised to teach her unknowing suitor Orlando the way to win a woman’s heart.
