The Boomerang Theatre Company will present Shakespeare’s As You Like It in Central Park July 19th-August 10th, 2008. Boomerang is celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2008, and this production commemorates the company’s inaugural production of As You Like It in 1999. The show is free to the public, with no tickets or reservations required. Performances are Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm, on the lawn at 69th Street and Central Park West.

Rosalind is banished and dressed as a boy. Orlando is on the run but smitten by a girl he saw fleetingly at court. Phebe is in love with Rosalind's male persona. Touchstone is in love with Audrey the milkmaid. Audrey...well, she is none too bright. But that's ok, because Celia is in love with bad boy Oliver. And among all this lovin', Jaques wants none of it.

As You Like It will perform July 19th-August 10th, 2008 on Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm. The production is free, with no reservations or tickets required for attendance. Audiences are encouraged to bring a blanket and picnic lunch and enjoy the show. Audiences can find the performance on the lawn just inside the park at 69th Street and Central Park West. Please enter at 69th Street and follow signs that guide you to the location.
