This September, the Cambridge University American Stage Tour brings its lively and colorful production of Shakespeare’s celebratory romance, "As You Like It," to Frostburg State University on Monday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center's F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre.
This feast of music, clowning and cross-dressing comes to you from students of Cambridge University, England. Each Autumn the best of Cambridge’s theatre talent cross the Atlantic to tour venues in the States – the show has been 11 months in the making with a full cast and crew working to create a thoroughly professional production.
CAST was founded in 1999 with the aim of producing excellent touring drama, which is exciting, socially relevant and fun. One of the driving forces behind CAST, a not-for-profit organization, is the need to make theatre accessible to modern audiences, by using innovative and ambitious methods and interpretations.
CAST tours also include the opportunity for American students and young people to participate in workshops, as a way of introducing them to Shakespeare or building on the knowledge they already have.
Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for students. For ticket information, call the FSU Box Office at (301) 687-4145.
FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, call (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
This appearance of CAST at FSU is supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts.
