Fall Play

Are you interested in getting involved in the Saint Joseph Academy Fall 2022 Play: As She Likes It

The Performing Arts Department will be producing As She Likes It for the fall 2022 play. As She Likes It is an anthology of short plays that features women from Shakespeare’s canon. The characters step outside of the male-dominated context of their original works, sometimes into another time and place. These familiar women from classic stories may have had muted voices in Shakespeare’s plays, but here they take center stage to discuss the choices they have made and navigate the power structures that have controlled their lives. These plays offer great roles for women, opportunities for thoughtful scene study, educational exploration and a larger conversation about how these women’s stories resonate in our current era.
 
Please note that auditions are open to all Saint Joseph Academy students and all male students from any area high schools. Auditions will be Tuesday, September 6 and Wednesday, September 7, 4-6 p.m.
