Brazosport College Theatre’s production of William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” will open to the community August 10.

Five performances are scheduled — Wednesday, August 10 through Sunday, August 14 — at the outdoor Shakespeare in the Glen venue at Brazosport College. All shows begin at 8 p.m.

“As You Like It” features lovers Rosalind and Orlando, who are unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile before becoming entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity.

“As You Like It” subverts the traditional rules of romance and gender roles. Nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering, yet utterly pleasurable, life can be.

Cast members include Travis Aguilar, Joshua Bilecki, Daniel Bradshaw, Charity Brown, Mary Elizabeth Munson, Christopher Graham II, Jocelyn Harper, Kailee Hiers, Jackson Kimbrough, Teresa LeCompte Skalski, Lindsey Poland, Cassi Shields, Beverley Watkins and Tomás Whitmarsh.

The play is directed by Kris Vanderwedge, while Shannon Averett is the costume designer, Michael McIntosh is providing scenic and sound design, and Cassi Shields with choreography.

This is Vanderwedge’s fifth directorial turn at Brazosport College. His prior productions include “Take a Number Darling,” “Hamlet,” All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarden” and “Cyrano de Bergerac.”

Although the play is being offered at no cost, tickets are required for all performances and can be purchased through a link at Brazosport.edu/theatre.
