NEYT alumni to perform ‘As You Like It’

BRATTLEBORO — New England Youth Theatre Alumni Association presents its fourth annual Shakespeare Unrehearsed fundraiser for NEYT's “Angels in the Wings” scholarship fund.

This year's offering is Shakespeare's pastoral comedy “As You Like It.” The play tells the story of Rosalind, a young beauty who flees from her treacherous uncle's court with the help of her cousin Celia and their faithful jester. As they journey through the tranquil Forest of Arden, the trio stumble across strange philosophies, hidden strengths, and love.

NEYT Alumni, actors seasoned and new, return to the Brattleboro stage to explore the world of Shakespeare's rich wordplay, imagery, and wit. Inspired by the Elizabethan-era process of theatrical production, the alumni will perform the show following no more than 10 hours of rehearsal.

Shows are 7 p.m. on Jan. 4, and 2 p.m. on Jan. 5. Tickets are available only at the door, and for a suggested donation of $10 - payment by cash or check only. All proceeds will be donated to NEYT's “Angels in the Wings” scholarship fund.
