California Shakespeare Theater begins its 43rd Season with Shakespeare’s gender-bending comedy, As You Like It. In director Desdemona Chiang’s all new production, adaptable and resilient Rosalind must leave everything she knows behind to find her true family. Disguised as a boy named Ganymede, she and her cousin Celia journey through the forests of Arden with the jester Touchstone, meeting both long-lost and newfound friends. Realizing that family is not just for those related by blood, she sheds her identity and transforms her relationships, discovering who she is along the way. Low-priced previews take place May 24-26; Opening Night is May 27, and performances continue through June 18 at the Bruns Ampitheater. Press night will be held Saturday, May 27, at 8 pm. Tickets (ranging from $20-$92) are available through the Cal Shakes Box Office at 510.548.9666 or by visiting www.calshakes.org. Ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
