Riverside - Riverside Theatre in the Park begins this Friday with Shakespeare's As You Like It, directed by Theodore Swetz.
As You Like It, set in the forest of Arden, is a pastoral comedy of gender-bending and confusion of identity. Kalen Harriman plays Rosalind, Jim Van Valen plays Jaques, and Tim Budd plays Touchstone.
As You Like It runs through July 8, in repertory with The Merchant of Venice. Performances are at Lower City Park in Iowa City. Tickets are $17-39.
