Musical 'As You Like It' has two more free performances this weekend

Shakespeare in the Park in residence in Redwood City through Sunday

San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, which offers free performances in Bay Area parks, is back at the scenic grounds of Sequoia High School in Redwood City with two more performances of the comedy "As You Like It." Performances will be held Saturday, Aug. 24, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 25, at 4 p.m. at 1201 Brewster Ave. at Broadway.

This year's production features original music by Bay Area composers The Kilbanes and Resident Artist Phil Wong.

"Just after Rosalind and Orlando meet and fall for each other, they’re both exiled from the autocratic Court to the Forest of Arden – with Rosalind in disguise as the boy Ganymede. Despite the challenges of life in the woods, they find new friends and allies and fall in love all over again," according to the SF Shakespeare website.

Attendees may bring blankets, low lawn chairs and picnics. A 15-minute introduction performance for all ages, "A Great Wreck-oning," plays at 6:30 on Saturdays and 3:30 on Sundays. For more information, go to Shakespeare in the Park.
