The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival begins tonight.

The festival will present As You Like It in Southmoreland Park on June 18  through July 7 on Tuesday through Sunday evenings at 8:00 p.m. and also on Monday, July 1.

According to the festival’s website, “This delightful pastoral comedy will bring our park to life as our heroine Rosalind journeys to the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and her philosophical Fool, Touchstone.  The forest provides a safe place for the exiled Duke and his entourage, the dispossesed Orlando and for Rosalind and her companions.  In the wilds, the wildest adventures occur.  This story has everything we love about Shakespeare’s comedies; mistaken identity, madness and mayhem.  And of course, LOVE.”

This is the festival’s 21st season production.
