The Baron’s Men is excited to announce that tickets for our spring events, As You Like It and Lysts on the Lake, are now on sale!
As You Like It is Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy which follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her aunt’s court, by transforming herself into the keen young gentleman Ganymede. Rosalind is accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of other memorable characters, most notably the melancholy traveler Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches, such as “All the world’s a stage.”
The run of As You Like It offers two additional opportunities for audience engagement. We will be hosting Arden Academy, a full night of programming for educational groups on April 7. Arden Academy will feature a stage fighting demonstration before the show, reserved seating, and a talkback with the cast and crew afterwards. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss special education group pricing options. On April 8, Under the Greenwood Tree promises a fun event that pairs the show with a delicious dinner under the branches of The Curtain Theatre’s historic pecan tree grove while being entertained by members of the cast.
Lysts on the Lake, a world-class competitive jousting event, will be proudly returning to Castleton Village and The Curtain Theatre for 2017. The Baron’s Men will be co-hosting this full-contact equestrian event on the shores of Lake Austin April 28-30th. This year competition will include 3 events: La Chasse- which will include a hunt course with multiple obstacles and quarry; Melee a’Cheval- a grand melee using tourney batons where everyone will be competing as an individual; and Joust a’Plaisance- mounted equestrian jousting. There will also be additional entertainment, educational opportunities, snacks, and commemorative swag. Pricing for groups of 12 or more is available by emailing email@example.com.
