AS YOU LIKE IT, just closed

Praise for As You Like It:

“Just saw, nay! – experienced As You Like It by The Castlemaine Theatre Company. It was brilliant! Flowing, effervescent, modern and accessible. If you’re afraid of Shakespeare, just read a synopsis of the play before going, then let the skills of the players (and director and support crews) convey the richness, humour and delight that is this production. Thanks CTC, again!”

I thoroughly enjoyed Shakespeare’s As You Like It performed by the Castlemaine Theatre Company this afternoon. Did the play justice, whilst staying relevant to a modern audience. Interesting costumes and simple but innovative set design. Good fun and good acting – I highly recommend it.”

“Brilliant!! I would urge you to go and see it.”

“Truly spectacular show! I’d recommend it to everyone”
