PITTSBURGH—Community College of Allegheny County South Campus Theatre’s resident Shakespeare Company Food for Groundlings will present William Shakespeare’s perennial audience-pleasing comedy, As You Like It, Wednesday, June 11 through Saturday, June 14 at 8:00 p.m. in the campus theater. The production will be directed by Jared LoAlbo.

First performed in 1603, As You Like It marks the height of Shakespeare’s lyrical phase and stands out among his other comedies, masterfully blending verse, wit, nature and remarkable insight into the heart of young love. The action takes place in the mystical forest of Arden and centers around a potent mix of mistaken identity, riotous mischief and joyful merry-making.

Admission to the show will be in the form of a nonperishable canned food item benefitting the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank or a cash donation to the Kevin Dilworth Memorial Theatre and Dance Scholarship. Dilworth was a CCAC theatre and dance student who passed away from complications due to Cystic Fibrosis in 2012.

Seating for this production will be limited. For more information, call 412.469.6219. The CCAC South Campus Theatre is located at 1750 Clairton Road in West Mifflin, Pa., 15122.
