Friends at First Outing to Shakespeare Musical

by | Oct 18, 2022

Friends at First, a fellowship group of active retired and semi-retired adults, gathers 5-6 times a year, often for cultural events and a shared meal. New participants are always welcome.

The group will be going to a musical production of the Shakespeare classic As You Like It. 

“A Musical Adaptation of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It
Adapted by Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery
Music and lyrics by Shaina Taub
Directed by Jessica Fisch
Named one of The New York Times’ best shows of 2017, this ravishing new musical adaptation of
Shakespeare’s play is an immersive dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families, and lovers
in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind, and niece
Celia, are banished to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place full of chance encounters and selfdiscovery where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find
acceptance under the stars in this open-hearted celebration of the healing power of community.”
