The summer of 2014 marks the fourth anniversary of Academy Theatre’s Outdoor Summer Shakespeare. St. Johnsbury Academy’s amphitheater is a magical place to perform in an intimate three quarter round with a mixed cast of seasoned actors who have been seen in many other Shakespeare plays, returning college students bringing their new skills to bear, recent graduates who will go off to fine colleges in the fall, current high school students who have been in many other productions and rising freshmen. Come experience one of the most loved comedies of Shakespeare set in the forest of Arden and performed in the garden setting of the amphitheater.

Shakespeare’s As You Like It, directed and choreographed by Janet Warner-Ashley, features original music by Bill Vinton, scenic design by Josh Duncan, costumes by Jane Vinton and stars Lindsey Newton as Rosalind, Grady Nixon as Orlando, J. Peter Young as both Duke Frederick and Duke Senior, Andrea Otto as Celia, Liam O’Connor-Genereaux as both Charles the Wrestler and Jaques, Nathan Colpitts as Touchstone, the fool, Katherine Gilmartin as Phebe, Alice Morrison as both Le Beau and Audrey, Jay Tilden as both Oliver and Sir Oliver Martex, Bill Vinton as Corin, Logan Samuels as Silvius, William and Dennis and uses the musical talent of Nicole Bradford as Amiens and Hymen, the goddess of marriage. Diego Melendez has created the poster and Amanda Allen is stage manager.

Theatre goers should bring a cushion, lawn chair or stadium seat as our theatre is a true Greek style theatre with no padding!
