WKU students perform Shakespeare’s “As You Like It”

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Students from the WKU Dance and Theatre Department put on a special performance of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” outdoors on Thursday night at WKU’s iconic Kissing Bridge.

It was the department’s first performance with a live audience since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Performers were masked while the audience was socially distanced.

“I really think the biggest draw is the sheer delight you will see from our students as they get to perform live again,” Director David Young said. “It’s been a tough year, and this play is a joyful and romantic comedy set in the mythical Forest of Arden.  The students have been super creative in bringing it to life and making it fun and approachable for a modern audience.”

There are still three more opportunities to see the show this weekend. To buy tickets, click here.
